Last night, my buddy and I were walking through the forest when we found a glowing beetle. A quick search on google showed us that the beetle was Lampyris Noctiluca. This beetle seems to be quite common in Europe and Asia but has not been found in North or South America. I live in Oklahoma and that is definitely in North America. We were wondering who or if we should contact someone about this find.

You can give it to your local university department of Entomology and they will put it in their collection. Make sure you have the date, and general location you found it. Also they probably will have a "contact us" page on their email so you can just ask them if they are interested in it. Alternatively you can contact the department of Agriculture and see if they are interested as they are tasked with identifying and quarantining invasive insects.
