Fireflies are passive flying mobs that 'glow' at night.


Natural generation

Fireflies spawn on grass blocks at light levels of 9 or more with at least 2 block space above. They often spawn in groups of 4 during world generation.


Fireflies are very small mobs that can glow at night. They also have elytra, or front wings, covering their inner wings, which can be seen on the firefly when it flies around.


Fireflies do not drop anything when killed. They drop 1 to 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.


Fireflies wander and fly around aimlessly. Like other insects, they can scale up walls and will fly away from the player when approached. They also glow at night, but this is merely for ambience, and does not provide a light source.
