| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“An insect very common in Havana, Brazil, Guiana and Mexico. It may be seen at night in great numbers amongst the foliage of trees. They sometimes are so numerous that they light up the forests for travelers in those countries where the heat prevents traveling by day.”


Hazlitt Alva Cuppy PH.D., Editor Beauties and Wonders of Land and Sea (Springfield, OH: Mast, Crowell & Kirkpatrick, 1895)
