#asian lady beetle

Found this handsome fella while waiting for the bus in central California, any help with id’ing what type of ladybug?

Looks like an Asian lady beetle! Here’s a post where I talk about how to tell the difference between those and native ladybugs. :)

Thanks for submitting! As always, submissions don’t count towards the one (1) nice bug per day.

a cute lil ladybug for u bug master

Very cute, but not a ladybug! It’s an Asian lady beetle. That big ol’ W shape on the pronotum (part between the shell and head) in the second photo is a dead giveaway. Regardless of species, this is a very nice bug. Thanks for submitting! As always, submissions don’t count towards the one (1) nice bug per day.

This is Wanda she also lives in my aloe plant and I believe she’s an Asian lady beetle, an imitation of a ladybug. She hasn’t eaten Herbert(who has gone underground in the soil of the plant to hibernate since late last night I assume) so I have let her live. She doesn’t like getting her picture taken cus she keeps zooming away.
