    Default firefly beetle

    Where can I catch a glimpse of this beetle firefly in Singapore? Chinese is called ying huo chong. Can provide a map of the exact location?

    Last time I heard, you can see them at the swamps at Pasir Ris at night.. Not sure on the exact location or 'season'.

    Is it live firing area or just training area with sign board saying no trespassing?

    Tonight I went but didn't see any firefly but picked some durians. Very dark, couldn't see my fingers in front of me.

    Just look up the tree from far, they usually fly quite high. The location is along the main Axis that spelling start with the letter 'M'.
