The most common European lady beetle, also introduced to North America, is bright red with seven black spots, white pronotal angles, and two white spots on the head.

This little lily patch is my best lady beetle diversity spot in all of Philadelphia, including the large city parks. I've found at least 7 species in about 2 square meters!
