BORNEO INSIGHTS – LAMPRIGERA SP.

“A glow worm (Lamprigera sp.) leaves a trail of bright green light during its nocturnal hunt for snails.

Actually a species of firefly (a family of beetles), the female of this genus reaches maturity while still in her larval form and thus remains wingless her entire life.
