Tikal National Park:

February 23, 2000: A reader notes: I watched hundreds of luminescent bugs in Tikal National Park in Guatemala on 2/20/00. They were mostly over a small swamp like pond though some ventured over a small grassy area. Most of these stayed too high in the trees and out of reach. I'm not 100% sure they were fireflies though they looked like ones I saw in Iowa as a kid. At least one source thought they might be click beatles.
