Five-spotted Lady Beetle

Hippodamia quinquesignata

Description:

Three-spotted? Transverse? I'm not sure what kind of lady beetle this is. The pronotum had two white spots within the black section. Any ideas?

Habitat:

I found this guy in the middle of winter tied up in a spiders web. The picture's not great but I tried to draw the pattern...
