Brazil hosts the richest biodiversity of bioluminescent beetles in the world. [...] Key Method Bioluminescent species of the Elateroidea superfamily occurring in three large and expanding urban areas in Sao Paulo State: Campinas, Sorocaba-Votorantim and Rio Claro-Limeira municipalities, were catalogued. In Campinas, the occurrence of bioluminescent beetles in different sites has been monitored during the past 20 years. There were 26 species in Campinas, 21 in Sorocaba-Votorantim and 19 in Rio Claro-Limeira…Expand

Bioluminescent Coleoptera of Biological Station of Boracéia (Salesópolis, SP, Brazil): diversity, bioluminescence and habitat distribution
TLDR
The biodiversity of bioluminescent species mainly of Elateroidea superfamily occurring in one of the last largest and most preserved remnants of Atlantic rain forest, located at the Biological Station of Boraceia of Sao Paulo University, is catalogued.
DIVERSIDADE DE COLEOPTERA (INSECTA) PRESENTE NO CENTRO DE FORMAÇÃO LARANJAL NO MUNICÍPIO DE ABAETETUBA-PA
Composing the order of insects with the greatest number of representatives and diversity, beetles have great ecological and social importance. Based on that, the objective of this study was to know
Snake richness in urban forest fragments from Niterói and surroundings, state of Rio de Janeiro, southeastern Brazil
TLDR
Most of the herpetofauna recorded in Niterói are strongly associated with forested areas and, perhaps, are not adapted to live in small fragments, so more initiatives should be implemented to evaluate the true conservation status of these species in order to better protect them.
Systematic review of the firefly genus Amydetes Illiger, 1807 (Coleoptera: Lampyridae), with description of 13 new species.
TLDR
Fonto-clypeus, antenna, labrum, maxillary palpomere, prothorax, mesosternum, lanterns, abdominal segment VIII and terminalia were structures that provided important characters for delimitation and diagnosis of the species.
A new orange emitting luciferase from the Southern-Amazon Pyrophorus angustus (Coleoptera: Elateridae) click-beetle: structure and bioluminescence color relationship, evolutional and ecological considerations.
TLDR
Comparative multialignment and site-directed mutagenesis using different color emitting click-beetle luciferases from P. angustus, Fulgeochlizus bruchi and Pyrearinus termitilluminans showed an integral role of residue 247 in bioluminescence color modulation.
Organization and comparative analysis of the mitochondrial genomes of bioluminescent Elateroidea (Coleoptera: Polyphaga).
TLDR
The mitophylogenomics analysis indicates the monophyly of the three bioluminescent families and a closer relationship between Lampyridae and Phengodidae/Rhagophthalmidae, in contrast with previous molecular analysis.
Artificial Night Lighting Reduces Firefly (Coleoptera: Lampyridae) Occurrence in Sorocaba, Brazil
TLDR
This study proposes fireflies as potential flagship species and bioindicators for artificial night lighting and for the first time quantifies its effects, providing subsidies for future conservationist legislations regarding photopollution.

TLDR
Cloned the cDNA for the luciferase of the Atlantic rain forest Amydetes fanestratus firefly shows one of the most blue-shifted emission spectra among beetle luciferases, with lower pH-sensitivity and higher affinity for ATP when compared to other luciferased, making thisLuciferase attractive for sensitive ATP and reporter assays.

Bioluminescence and Biological Aspects of Brazilian Railroad-Worms (Coleoptera: Phengodidae)
TLDR
Luminescence was observed among all life stages of the species studied, in contrast to the North American Phengodini, whose adult males do not glow.
Fireflies (Coleoptera: Lampyridae) from Southeastern Brazil: Habitats, Life History, and Bioluminescence
TLDR
Glow patterns in the green region of the spectrum were predominant among forest dwelling fireflies, whereas flash patterns were more commonly observed among open-field dwellingFireflies, which may be adaptation to luminescent signal optimization in different photic environments or for different signal functions, such as sexual attraction, defense and illumination.
Dung beetle (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) assemblages across a natural forest-cerrado ecotone in Minas Gerais, Brazil
TLDR
The effect of the habitat (forest vs. cerrado) has a much stronger effect on the assemblage structure than the presence of the edge: dung beetles responded strongly to change in habitats, but weakly to the proximity of the edges between these habitats.

A diversidade diferencial beta de Coleoptera (Insecta) em uma paisagem antropizada do Bioma Araucária
TLDR
It is shown that high insect diversity can be maintained by preserving biodiversity hotspots within the study area, as well as maintaining a mosaic of sites with different vegetational successions and native flora plantation.
Ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) as bioindicators
TLDR
It is concluded that carabids are useful bioindicators, but as crucial understanding of their relationship with others species is incomplete, they should be used with caution.
