Eriopis connexa chilensis
La más común de las chinitas chilenas. Como dicen en http://www.coccinellidae.cl/paginasWebCh... solo que fue encontrada en Uruguay.
That was EXACTLY what I was going to put as scientific name!
I think it looks quite similarly to the "Eriopis connexa chilensis", although the head presents some variations...but I think it definetely is from the Coccinellidae family... Greetings
I know that san antonio's are beetles which belong to the ladybird beetle family. Now, I think that here in Uruguay we have some kind of round ladybirds and we also have some with that shape of the body, sort of thinner...not as round as the others. What is more, recently I have seen more of the rounder type, although both seem to be present; but in the past I saw more of the thinner ones all around. Greetings
No it isn't, San Antonios have a rounder body and you can't see so well its head. But San Antonios are beetles, too.
Isn´t it a San Antonio? mmm, san antonio´s are red with black dots and this one is black with orange ones, is that so? The body resambles a San Antonio one...However, if you check this link, there are orange with black spots variations...http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/CoccinellidaeI think it may be a coccinellidae, which belongs to the ladybird family....Greetings
Thanks, Patty! =) But this isn't a ladybird, it's a beetle.
Beautiful ladybug and series Ceci =)
