Description

This particular individual was found floating in a bucket of sugar maple sap on the GNC property. This particular sugar maple is very old and has lots of places for insects to hide under the bark. It is known that this species likes to overwinter under the bark of trees and feed on maple sap. It was placed back on the trunk of the tree so it could be photographed.

Description from Wikipedia

Ellychnia is a genus of fireflies. First defined by Émile Blanchard in 1845, the genus contains 12 species, which are widespread in the United States. Adults are black, with rose-colored marks on the pronotum;sexual dimorphism is unknown. These beetles are active during the day, and have no light-producing organs as adults; instead, they attract mates using chemical signals. The larvae of Ellychnia fireflies live in rotting logs.

No range data available.
