The first cytogenetic report of fireflies (Coleoptera, Lampyridae) from Brazilian fauna
TLDR
The first cytogenetic analysis of fireflies from Brazilian fauna was carried out in this work, and the analysis of meiotic cells showed that the neoXY sexual bivalent of B. lividipennis exhibited a prominent terminal chiasma, indicating that the sex chromosomes are not wholly differentiated and still retain a region of homology.
Description of Photuris fulvipes (Blanchard) immatures (Coleoptera, Lampyridae, Photurinae) and bionomic aspects under laboratory conditions

Hidden diversity in the Brazilian Atlantic rainforest: the discovery of Jurasaidae, a new beetle family (Coleoptera, Elateroidea) with neotenic females
TLDR
The discovery of a completely new lineage of soft-bodied neotenic beetles from the Brazilian Atlantic rainforest, which is due to the limited dispersal capability and cryptic lifestyle of its wingless females bound to long-term stable habitats, highlights the importance of the BrazilianAtlantic rainforest as a top priority area for nature conservation.
Aspisoma lineatum (Gyllenhal) (Coleoptera: Lampyridae) Firefly: Description of the Immatures, Biological, and Ecological Aspects
TLDR
This firefly species was found to be easily adapted to environments under anthropic influence, such as urban areas and farms, and a method for its rearing was established.
