i’ve added this little animated gif to the respective gallery:

female glowworm (lampyris noctiluca)
female glowworm (lampyris noctiluca).
ony the (wingless) females are able to produce light.

it shows the same glowworm at “usual” lighting, and with a little more light so you can see what the bug itself looks like.
although they are called glowworms or fireflies, this really is a species of beetle.
