By the way about the fireflies or how to call them lightly. This is a family of beetles, numbering about 2000 species, a characteristic feature of which is the presence on the last abdominal segments of the glow bodies.
These glow bodies are usually located under a transparent cuticle and are formed by large photogenic cells, abundant braided nerves and trachea. Under these cells there are light reflectors – blades filled with crystallines. In trachemetes, oxygen comes to cells, which is necessary for oxidative processes during which the glow occurs.
The light emitted by the bellows is cold and refers to the visible yellow-green part of the spectrum.
Many types of fireflies can increase or reduce the intensity of their glow, as well as emit intermittent light. When their nervous system gives a signal about "inclusion" of light, the intensive flow of oxygen begins into the glow bodies, and when you need to "turn off", its feed stops.
