Although Genji firefly inhabits only Japan, Heike firefly lives widely with Japan, Korea, Manchuria, and East Siberia. The larva of a firefly is an aquatic life. The light of an imago of Genji firefly is stronger than that of Heike firefly. Although a firefly has many shining kinds, there are some which seldom shine in inside.
