Yes, it really took a loooong time for your ID, I waited and waited, the more I waited the more spots disappeared...

It's okay, bayucca! :) This does look very much like P. 14-punctata, and I had to do a lot of research to find out what it really was.

my first thought was also Propylea but it doesn't quite match. I think it's Adalia decempunctata. They look a lot alike though!

I know I am treading on thin ice..., however, this larva is from my old aera I lived before and I should at least try to challenge Abi ;-)...
I think this one might have 14 spots... maybe Propylaea quatuordecimpunctata???http://tt.ibt.lt/v/insecta/coleoptera/coccinellidae/propylea_quatuordecimpunctata/Propylaea_quatuordecimpunctata_1583.jpg.html

Ladybird beetle larva, family Coccinellidae, appears to be subfamily Coccinellinae and tribe Coccinellini. I will try to find out the species.
