Photinus pyralis, also known as the common eastern firefly, is the most common species of firefly in North America.
Firefly larvae are often referred to as ‘glow worms’ due to the soft glowing light they emit. Adults retain this feature and use it as a means of communication/attraction, and even the eggs of this species are known to emit a faint glow.
