Firefly Larva

Dear Robert,
This is the larva of a Firefly and many larval Fireflies are also capable of bioluminescence.  There is a similar image of a Firefly larva on the University of Kentucky Entomology site.

Thank you so much! Never dreamed that a firefly larva would look like this. Looked more like some type of roly poly spiecis.

Location: Hopkinsville, Kentucky
