Male Glowworm

Phengodes sp. (likely plumosa)

While tromping around today I was excited to come across this male glowworm! He's a tiny little guy and I almost missed him. The female glowworms remain larviform in adulthood, and they and the larvae are the ones that glow, males do not. Alas, no females (or larvae) in sight.

(Those are my binoculars behind him for contrast...
my camera kind of sucks at focusing on tiny things)
