Very small ladybird found in grass
No interactions present.
Thanks for your help, I used the FSC ID chart and having looked again I do agree with you as there is a white pronotum. I found the fused spots confusing.
Yes, this Adalia decempunctata - it's larger than the 24-spot, and, as mentioned, has the white pronotum as opposed to the orange of Subcoccinella. This is an unusually heavily marked form of the 10-spot - usually the black spots are far smaller, as in the form on the FSC chart
