Fungus Eating Ladybird

Illeis galbula


"This is a fungus-eating Ladybird which is about 5mm long with bright yellow with black markings. It is active during the day and fast moving and it lives on plants infected with fungus or black mould. This is not a welcome garden pest because it spreads the fungi and mould spores to other plants." -

Ha! I don't think they can climb on those webs so might be an 'ex' beetle. Well captured anyway.
