Dusky Ladybug Larvae

Scymnini sp.


Scymnini ladybug larvae are characterized for the secretions of white wax coating around them, which make them more easily noticeable than other larvae


Neotropical Forest


Very little is known about this litte critters, I could observe their strange behaviours, they apparently gather on spots that they slightly 'paint' with their waxy secretions, one of this organisms was seen wiggling constantly on one of this spots. Please, if you have more information about Scymnini larvae don't hesitate to tell me about it.
