Welcome to Project Noah! To get to know the site a little better, our FAQs are very helpful! Here is the link www.projectnoah.org/faq Or if you have any questions you can just ask them in a comment on this spotting too :) You can also move this to the arthropods category by clicking on "edit this spotting" that's also where you can enter in info into the notes and description box :) Enjoy and we look forward to seeing more Australia wildlife from you!

Thanks again Mark. This was my first submission. I will do a better job from now on. Today the yard was full of yellow lady beetles, you must be right :)

While I think of it also it's a good idea to put something in the description or notes about the size, local conditions and behaviour if relevant. Those things can help a lot with ID for some organisms.

Good find. This is the larval stage of the Fungus-eating ladybird.
