Fireflies of the genus Pygoluciola Wittmer are rare in South-East Asia. Previously they were known only from the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, Mindanao Island in the Philippines and a single species in mainland China. Here a first record from Thailand is presented. This version conforms morphologically to an expanded view of the genus lacking the pronounced abdominal modifications.
