The Glowing spidervine is a species of plant-like flora indigenous to Tallon IV. It is carnivorous, and uses bioluminescent light - presumably produced from bacteria inside itself - to attract its prey: insects. It is not dangerous to larger organisms, especially so in the case of armored Bounty Hunters such as Samus.
It has so far only been found in Metroid Prime.

- Concept art names a species called "Spider mold". It is possible that the Glowing Spidervine is related to it.
