Though there is not much visible in your image beyond the vague outline and the two bright green lights, there is no doubt in our mind that this is a Glowing Click Beetle or Fire Beetle in the genus Deilelater. Most of our reports come from Florida, and occasionally from Texas, and recently we have been receiving many comments on old postings, leading us to believe there is a spike in populations of Glowing Click Beetles this year, but your image is the first we have received in many years.
