    Thanks Gale. Yes it is a ladybug. Actually it turns red with black spots. I am going to post some of the adult a little later. I got the whole life cycle so I am very excited.

    Thanks Sandi.
     

  11. Great continuation of the earlier series.

    Yes, the elytra will turn reddish, but I doubt that it will develop black dots.

    The species name is Cycloneda munda and it usually has more or less unicolorous elytra.

    Cheers
     
  12. Very cool, I've never seen that before.

  15. Just had a look again at your initial thread "Where it all starts". What you captured there is a different species :wink:

    Cheers

    Thanks for the information Harry. I got my identification from this site http://ohioline.osu.edu/hse-fact/1030.html and everything they say seems to correlate to the beetles that I have been taking pictures of. There are many different shades of the beetles, some with lots of spots, some with little. All the larva have looked the same and so that is why I thought it was the Multicolored Asian Ladybug. However, you are the expert and so I can't say for sure. Thank you for all your input.

    Do you think it could be the multicolored Asian Ladybug?
