ForestDragon, I was referring to the white spots some of the beetles in the photos have behind the larger white spots that look like eyes. The spots are on the smaller black part of the head right where the colored part begins. Looking at the info you provided, it appears that the beetles patterns vary widely within the species. The original link you sent was correct.
Which extra white spots do you mean? I see light reflection in your photo as well as less detail since the photo is not quite in focus. These have similar markings to yours.http://bugguide.net/node/view/1060385/bg...http://bugguide.net/node/view/106368http://bugguide.net/node/view/1070266/bg...Does this help?
Forestdragon, I saw the ladybugs on that link and I couldn't find one that had this coloring that didn't have the extra white spots in addition to the ones that look like eyes. I even ran the parameters with what was available on their page and it told me that the species wasn't documented on their yet.
