I have been trying to make the genie elixir for some time now. I have collected every single of the fire fly and I just can not find the purple one (purpureus). Has anyone found this one in moonlight falls? I have gone out on full moons and at night. Also, my sim has the life time opportunity where she can find insects, stones, stones, etc. Thanks.

I can't remember where that purple one is at, but if you send me a friends request, I can send you the potion. I tried to send you a friends request, but I keep getting a message that is telling me that EA is having problems.
Also, using your Collection Helper between 11 pm and midnight will help you find fireflies, as it shows only fireflies at that time. You can queue up the catching and have a sim catch all the fireflies in town. They tend to get a jar lid stuck to their hand or wrist though, so you will need to use the resetsim cheat on them when you're done, if that happens to you

I also have the blue firefly location in my blog There's actually three locations for it that I've found so far. Near the gate of the arboretum, near the theatre and between the water tower and the school.

Another spot where will o' wisps sometimes spawn is near the dam, just beyond the bridge. I'll have to take a screenshot next time I see one, but it's very very very rare! You need to collect bugs constantly to get new ones to spawn--like collecting all the rocks to get the higher ones to spawn.
i have noticed that some locations will spawn different color firefly's depending on which day of the week it is. I have a list of the different locations for the unusual and rare firefly's but I don't have any screenshots.
All directions are based on looking at the location from the front entrance.
Left of the three large rocks that are left of 149 Horseshoe Bend: Red normally, Blue on Mondays.
Across the street from the Junkyard: pink-Fridays
Center base of mountain between Merchant Way and Valley View Drive: Blue normally, red on Sunday
Right of the fire station: Pink (Rainbow butterfly during the day)
Upper left corner of the Arboretum: Blue
Left of City Hall: Blue
Across the street from 206 V.V. Drive:Pink
Across the street to the left of the Hospital: Blue
Left of top curve of V.V. Drive: Purple
Right of 2345 Waning Way by the large rock: Purple
Left of 249 V.V. Drive near the road: Blue, Red on Sunday and Friday

I've tried that but it doesn't work, does it only work in Moonlight Falls? Because I'm playing Barnacle Bay and every time I try during that time it shows moths, monarchs, water beetles, cockroaches etc. I even checked at other times just in case the source I read was wrong but it always shows all insects, not just fireflies.
It's the blue one I can never find, I seem to encounter the purple one every night I look...
