Multiple males flying/flashing at this field site. I feel this is a bit early in their season, but it has been very warm the past few days. Did not obviously see any females signaling

Description

Pyractomena adult male (possibly Pyractomena angulata) found stationary on a plant within the marsh of the Rock Meadow in Belmont, MA. Would flash in response to light from headlights sweeping over marsh from nearby road. Anecdotally pretty cold and windy for fireflies to be flying, so not too surprised he was hunkered down.
