6223 Found this little guy on a counter at work. It’s been around 20° and warm here on Vancouver island in May. This beetle looks like a species of ladybug but had an unusual pattern. Same size as a traditional ladybug. From Courtenay, British Columbia
Number 6223 – This is a lady beetle (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae); it appears to be Myzia subvittata, known as the subvittate lady beetle – Click here for an image.
Thank you for the identification! How fascinating insects are. I’ve lived here for over 20 years and never seen this variety before.
