Not sure how many 'spots' would qualify on this one.
No interactions present.
Face and Size would help distingusih betwee the very similar 10 Spot
3.5-4.5 mm 10 Spot versus 6 - 8 mm Harlequin
Whats Happening ???

This is as much of the Ladybird that I saw before it scooted off. It was about 8mm long. I counted about 18 spots in total.
Number of Spots (and variation between number of Melanic Forms ) varies Robert The size is a major differentiater for the 10 Spot hence likely a HL
Size definitely much larger than a 10 spot, but would have been nice to see one though. Thanks again Colin. Got larva today and trying to differentiate the two that I saw, will put them up later.
