22-spot Ladybird Psyllobora vigintiduopunctata (Linnaeus, 1758)
View available larval and pupal stages
...
As a mildew feeder, the attractively coloured/marked 22-spot Ladybird is best looked for amongst low vegetation. Mildew infested Hogweed will eventually provide records, but it did take us quite a long time before eventually finding them. We have since found this species to be common in many habitats and recently found an adult over-wintering under bark at King's Mill Reservoir.
