Fireflies are considered of the beetle family in the category, Lampyridae, due to their soft-bodied shells. The Lampyridae beetles are commonly called fireflies or lightning bugs, depending on region, due to their conspicuous use of bioluminescence during twilight to attract mates or prey. In the Southern region of the United States, they are commonly referred to as lightning bugs. In the northern and mid-western regions of the U.S., they are referred to as fireflies.
