Do fireflies still blink when it's light out? If not, I'm not sure how someone could easily tell that some random flying insect is a firefly. Barmar (talk) 23:39, 28 July 2023 (UTC)

I've seen some indoors, flashing. I think it might have been in a dim room. But really it's not that hard to tell them from other common insects even without flashing. I would think you can differentiate bees, flies, lady bugs, mosquitoes, etc. 00:25, 29 July 2023 (UTC)Pat
It's not easy if you never saw any clearly. Ok, from flies and bees, sure, but from other beetles ... -- Hkmaly (talk) 01:36, 29 July 2023 (UTC)
It's not too hard if you know what to look for - the most distinguishing feature from other beetles is their translucent abdomen 14:27, 1 August 2023 (UTC)

Huge kudos to whoever made that Counting Crows reference in the "incomplete" box. Trogdor147 (talk) 02:12, 29 July 2023 (UTC)

Is it cannibalism if the predator is a different species? Perhaps "pseudo-cannabilzed"Boatster (talk) 02:24, 29 July 2023 (UTC)

Have there been a lot of firefly comics recently, or am I misremembering? R128 (talk) 03:56, 29 July 2023 (UTC)

There was one earlier this month (#2802). Trogdor147 (talk) 02:42, 30 July 2023 (UTC)
