Thanks for your ID. It was really helpful!
It's not Psyllobora, which has similar colouration, but is a different shape (much more tapered)
Record your ladybird sightings!
was not sure so just put might be,would like to find one,what food plant do they feed on.
22-spots feed on mildew, so aren't restricted to any particular foodplant. They're often found on the leaves of umbellifers, particularly hogweeds, as they get covered in mildew for most of the summer, but I also frequently find them on decorative Euonymus species - the larvae I found on Saturday were in huge numbers all over a bush so mildewed that it was almost white!
