Male Glowworm

Dear Melissa,
This is a male Glowworm, and unlike Fireflies that have bioluminescent adults, it is generally only the larval Glowworms that give off light.  What you have described as “eye lashes” are actually antennae, and there is no stinger.  Glowworms are entirely harmless to humans.  We try to promote tolerance of the lower beasts, and it appears this Glowworm met an untimely death, so we are tagging this posting as Unnecessary Carnage.
