Balgus is a genus of click beetle (family Elateridae). They are one of several genera in the family which contain at least one bioluminescent species.[1] The genus was originally placed in the family Eucnemidae, later transferred to Throscidae, but recent classifications establish them firmly within Elateridae.[2]
