Three-spotted lady beetle larva

Axion tripustulatum

Description:

This larva is approximately 1/4 inch long. It seems to be very slowly spinning around-this may be part of turning into a pupa! I will watch to see if I can document this further-fingers crossed!

Habitat:

I found it attached to the side of our house.

Notes:

I was thrilled to receive a note from a contributing editor to inform me that "It's a great find! This is the first larva of the species to be posted on BugGuide."
