Harlequin Ladybird

Harmonia axyridis spectabilis


Looks like a normal ladybug, but black with two red spots per wing. But i'am not sure if it's a normal ladybug or the asian version...

Hi Zariga,
thanks for your comment and your suggestion. I followed your link and there is one bug on a pic which look exactly the same as the one I´ve found in my backyard.
Thanks a lot for your help

Those black dots it has on its the white dots it has on it's front makes me doubt my suggestion, but the "spectabilis" form of the "Harmonia axyridis" is the closest thing I found to your spotting.
It's a beautiful bug! Hope I helped.
