Dear x-CAli girl,
Thanks for sending this lovely photo of a Firefly.  We just returned from Ohio, but the cool spring delayed the Firefly emergence and we did not get to experience the wonderful nighttime display.  You question is quite loaded.  Here is a link to the Potentially Dangerous Arachnids and Insects on BugGuide.
