ABSTRACT Originally published in 1863 in the Annales de la Société Entomologique de France (p.661-665) this short note on the life history of Luciola lusitanica by Peragallo provides nature observations of this species in Menton on the south coast of France. In addition Peragallo records in Menton the presence of a phosphorescent Staphylinus species.
