Common Spotted Ladybird

Harmonia conformis

Description:

The Common Spotted Ladybird Beetles are medium in size. They are beautifully bright orange in colour with 23 black dots on its wing-covers. As this one is newly emerged it is yellow and has not yet developed it's spots.

Habitat:

Observed on the trunk of a Blue Jacaranda tree outside my living room window, at this time of year the tree is covered with aphids. So if your a ladybeetle it's like a one stop shop!

Notes:

In picture is the Common Spotted Ladybird just hatched from its pupa, the patterns on the forewings will appear a few hours later. The Common Spotted Ladybirds take about 8 days form pupa to adult. There is also another ladybeetle under our newborn in pupa stage.
