Threatened Species Fact Sheets

These fact sheets provide in-depth information about threatened firefly species, including identification, natural history, distribution, threats, key conservation and management needs, and survey guidance. While similar in some respects to the IUCN Red List assessments, these fact sheets have been updated with the latest research and survey findings, and are tailored specifically for land managers, researchers, and others interested in taking action to better understand and protect threatened fireflies and their habitats.
