New Firefly Species in the Cache

May 29 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The cypress firefly (Photuris walldoxeyi) was first documented in early 2019 in high-quality cypress swamps in Mississippi, Tennessee and Indiana; and a confirmed Illinois sighting was recorded at the Heron Pond boardwalk in June 2019. Natural heritage biologist Christina Feng will present a program on fireflies of Illinois at the Wetlands Center and then lead an optional night hike to Heron Pond boardwalk in search of the cypress firefly.
