That looks similar to a lightning bug here, but not totally sure. Do you have them there?
I looked up ligntning bugs on wiki and found this similar looking photo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cyphonocerus_ruficollis_2552543412_crop.png
I've never seen any fireflies here. I remember chasing them around when I was little while visiting my mom's family in Ohio though! You are right though, they do look quite similar. Must be same family. Now I wish I had looked at it's underside. Next time I see one I may have to put it in a jar and wait for night time just in case! :)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefly
It does look like a lightening bug/firefly but they don't live west of the Rockies! Bet it's in the family.
