Metallic Blue Lady Beetle

Curinus coeruleus

Description:

This ladybug surprised me yesterday as I was checking some plants. I had never seen one of this type before. So I got my camera and clicked off a bunch off shots for this very patient model.

Habitat:

Caribbean native. Imported to FL. Also in Hawaii.

Notes:

This is only the 19th reported to & verified by the Lost Ladybug Project http://www.lostladybug.org/index.php http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/hs138

Thanks! (I don't see it as blue at all, but maybe if the light was different.)
