Fifteen-spotted Lady Beetle

Anatis labiculata


Little ladybug, probably around 8 mm or so in size. But instead of the usual orange colour I'm used to, this one was white with black spots. Roundish-oval shape. The species darken with age.


Found in Ontario, and the States, and sometimes as far as Manitoba (like this one who flew through my window in Winnipeg). Found in forests & woods.


There are 5,000 species of ladybugs described worldwide, and 450 just in North America.
