I had seen this ladybird earlier and imagined that it was just resting. When, however, I noticed that it was still there a few days later I became suspicious and noticed that it was attached to the leaf by some clay coloured medium. Every now and then the ladybird would rock or a black leg-like object would appear just under the head.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to which parasite is responsible.
