Description:

A new species for me, these ladybirds were present in large numbers in this damp meadow. They were initially found in sweep nets, but then after looking in the grasses, many were spotted 'in situ'. I've posted 4 pictures showing the range of colours present.

Thanks Rimo

Thanks for the feedback on the usual English name - I'll edit the title of the posting to correct the name.
