It looks kind of like a cross between a Roach and a firefly with the light on the wrong end. Does it light up like that all the time or just a night like a common firefly. BTW a good clear picture.

Do not blink like the firefly, stay lighted for quite some time at night or
when they are disturbed.
Their head tilt very fast(with a click noise) like a catapult when they are upside-down, the punch is strong enough to make then jump.
Thanks, look at the original picture(just resized from 1600x1200)

Bye, Pictus

Amazing creature. Thanks for giving us a look.
The only living things that I 've seen glow are the bio-luminescent algae in the south pacific that get chruned up in the wake of a large propeller. But, this is much cooler looking.
