Harlequin ladybird

Rounder in body shape and larger than our native, this beetle looks most similar to Harmonia axyridis form succinea as on the FSC Guide to ladybirds. However, spots are less distinct and middle pattern of three spots merged at the central line is missing; less white on pronotum than H. succinea.
