Glowworm

Dear Yes,
You write as though you suspect this is a conspiracy.  This is an adult male Glowworm Beetle, and the luminescent larvae are sometimes called Railroad Worms.  It is a harmless and beneficial insect.  Since the concept of Spontaneous Generation has been scientifically dispelled, we postulate that it is descended from other Glowworms, and we can’t imagine who sent it, but since “males come to lights” according to BugGuide, we imagine it was attracted to your illuminated interior.
