Ladybird pupa

? Harmonia conformis

Description:

A brightly coloured pupa about 5mm long.

Habitat:

Acacia tree- nature reserve

Notes:

There were many common spotted ladybirds ( Harmonia conformis) on the tree so, I assumed that this is a pupa of a ladybird of this species. The larva will hatch in 1 to 2 weeks.

Yes Sarah, I should have brought one home (I saw several of these). I might return to the spot and see if I can find any more of these.

You could collect the leaf it's on and wait for it to emerge, though it does look a lot like the ones I photographed (Common Spotted Ladybird - Harmonia coniformis.)
