LuisStevens, take a look at this...
No-spotted Ladybugs
Cycloneda polita, and Cycloneda sanguinea are ladybugs with no spots!
The only way to tell them apart is to look at the white markings on their pronota (remember, the shield like covering between head and wings). If the white markings do not form fully enclosed circles then it is C. polita; if they do form fully enclosed circles then it is C. sanguinea.
