Don't you folx know I'm old enuff to know what a lightnin' bug/firefly
is? These things were wingless bugs, not really worm-ish, more like
dodecoped (is that a 12-legged thing??). So...they are about 3/16th of
an inch long...wider at the head with a body shaped like an
arrowhead...the tip of the tail glows...doesn't 'flash' like a lightning
bug...they crawl on the ground in leaves along the banks of a stream.
