New Firefly Species in the Cache.
The cypress firefly, lightening bug, (Photuris walldoxeyi) was first documented in early 2019 in high-quality cypress swamps in Mississippi, Tennessee and Indiana.  A confirmed Illinois sighting was recorded at the Heron Pond boardwalk in June 2019. Natural heritage biologist Christina Feng will tell us about fireflies of Illinois while leading a night hike on the Todd Fink-Heron Pond Trail to the Heron Pond boardwalk in search of the cypress firefly.
