Common Spotted Ladybird

Harmonia conformis


Common Spotted Ladybirds are a medium in sized beetle. They are beautifully bright orange in colour with 23 black dots on their wing-covers.


Common Spotted Ladybirds can be found easily in our backyard gardens in early summer.


The Common Spotted Ladybird are voracious predators of aphids, scale insects and mites. Adults will consume 2,500 aphids during their life. This one was observed on the trunk of a Jacaranda-Tree, at this time of year our Jacaranda gets covered with aphids so I guess our Ladybird was getting some takeaway!!
