Pyrops candelaria

The Lantern Fly is a bug found on trees between the months of June and September, at two different times of the evening, between 4pm to 7pm, then again from 11pm to 8am. It is uncommon, and can be found in the rain aswell as on clear evenings. As with Oak Silk Moths, they are very skittish so extra care must be taken with approach. They are not related to fireflies.
