Lady Beetle

Aiolocaria hexaspilota

Description:

Relatively large.

Notes:

I notice there is a dent at the back. Could it be a bird-bite mark, injury due to fall from a height, or some infection. I see them in big clusters when they come to my place.

Thanks bayucca for the ID and ref. Is it ok even if their patterns on the back differ?
