I am investigating on the emission of signals in the courtship and mating in the animals.

I know that the fireflies emit light signals as a courtship ritual.

Are there other animals that use this phenomenon of luminescence?

Many Ostracods (esp. the Cyprididae) use bioluminescence to attract mates. The Bermuda fireworm (a polychete worm) also uses bioluminescence to attract mates.

If you have not yet, you should definitely have a look at wikipedia > Bioluminescence
