I'll be interested to see the verdict on this one - I don't know any really spiky ones except the harlequin, and the colouring would be very abnormal for that.
That makes a lot of sense, and explains the similarity to the harlequin (same genus). Well done. :o)
thankyou Nev, have seen quite a few cream streaked about, best regards keith.
hhhmmmmm, though I was going crazy for a minute there as never heard this species referred to as 4 spot lady bird, only cream streaked! I guess the latin name gives it away?!
Don't worry, Clare - I was completely befuddled for a second as well. :o)
I assume quadripunctata is referring to the 4 spots at the edge of the elyta in the form with few or no spots in the red of the elytra.
