Wrong kind of ladybird, Otby
Wrong kind of ladybird, Otby
Harmonia axyridis spectabilis, a Harlequin Ladybird invader.

Without positive identification at the scene I was not prepared to squash it, so I'm afraid it lives on.

Like the grey squirrel, it has ousted the native species to the point where I shall perhaps soon be glad to see any ladybird at all!
