Thank you martinl!
Leaf beetles (chrysomelidae) and ladybird beetles (Coccinellidae) can sometimes look very similar because they are hemispherical and have a dotted pattern. Usually. Leaf beetles eat leaves (both larvae and adults) and ladybird beetles eat other insects. Usually. A useful clue is that ladybird beetles have shorter antennae. Usually.
