Coleomegilla maculata lengi
Dark brown beetle larva with orange markings. The "eyespots" on the pronotum (first segment behind head) and the orange belt around the 4th abdominal segment are keys for identifying this species as a larva. Adults are pink or red lady beetles with black spots and an elongated, tapered shape.
