Harlequin Ladybird Larva

Harmonia axyridis


Larva that looks like it's trying to impersonate an alligator. It was black with rows of orange markings and double-branched spines. Interestingly, the size of the larva is actually larger than the size it will be as an adult.


Spotted on vegetation next to a pond in a deciduous forest.
