Flash beetles are relatively large, bioluminescent beetles.[1]

A typical flash beetle is three feet long, with a pair of glowing organs that can emit a blinding flash of light and continue glowing for several days, even after death. This makes them useful to residents of the Darklands, who domesticate and use them as pets, livestock, or light sources, as well as to miners and other underground travelers for whom a flash beetle's light is cheaper and safer than other sources.[1]
