Gordon Dietzman-Right?!! Uday, you rock! Thanks again, guys!!!
Good job with the ID!
no problem at all! :)
Uday-YEAH!! You nailed it! Thank you sooooo much! :-)
yh welcome! may be its asian ladybug larva
Gordon Dietzman-The closest one I found was under the heading: unidentified larvae and pupae. Argh! :-) For now it'll be listed under Coccinellidae - Lady Beetles for lack of a better id. Thank you!!!
Uday-Lady bug nymph?!! Never....I'd never have guessed that! How amazing and what a huge difference from larvae to adult. Thank you!!!
I agree with Uday that it is a ladybug larvae. Not sure which species, but you might want to try to ID it at http://bugguide.net/node/view/340375/bgi.... Sort through the photos for each gensu; some of them have photos of larvae. Good luck in your search! I'll be curious what you come up with.
its a lady bug nymph!
