Below are reports from Indonesia, listed in date order, alphabetically by city.
December 9, 2002: A reader reports: Re fireflies in Bali
- small green bioluminescent lights every 1 second at 21' Celcius, Humidity 69%
Our location is 1000 ft altitude (AGL), rural outskirts of Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. Lat 8' S, Lon 150' E.
Regrowth uncultivated jungle unchanged for the past 20 years.
Artificial light - nil
Habitat - lower valley/sparse rice paddies, hillside tropical undergrowth, local tree canopy
20 years ago 2 to 3 fireflies per night each of 2 bedrooms, now 1 firefly every 30 days nett.
Conclusion: no habitat change, diminished firefly population, possibility of increased application or accumulation of pesticides newly introduced here.
Any thoughts as to firefly attractions welcomed.
