幽深的洞里，形态各异的钟乳石让人叹为观止。乘着小舟穿梭于幽暗之中，头顶的萤火虫如点点繁星般闪耀，让人有一种身在另一个世界的错觉。It’s far less romantic to call them Arachnocampa luminosa, or fungus gnats. So let’s go with the common name: New Zealand glowworms. It’s those luminescent insects that make the ceiling of the Waitomo Glowworm Caves shine like a starry night sky. Some scientists suggest that the illusion of a night sky is precisely what might convince a mayfly or mosquito that it’s flying up and out of the cave, instead of into the snare of a waiting glowworm. Feeding on other insects is how the larva of this species survives long enough to mature into an adult gnat, whose sole purpose is to find a mate. The adult gnat doesn’t even eat during the few days it lives. But wasn’t this supposed to be the romantic view of this natural wonder?
