24-spot Ladybird Subcoccinella vigintiquattuorpunctata (Linnaeus, 1758)
The 24-spot Ladybird is the only hairy ladybird of all those Ladybirds easily recognisable as such, but a magnifying glass is really needed to show the covering of short hairs. Typically found on a range of low growing plants in grassy areas, in Nottinghamshire, this Ladybird seems restricted to a handful of Trent Valley sites.
