Cream-streaked Ladybird first arrived in Britain during
the 1930's and has since spread outwards from it's
original colonisation site in Suffolk, to reach both
Wales and Scotland. This fairly large, tree-dwelling
Ladybird frequents forested areas where Scots Pine grows.
Observations carried out since 2006, have shown that it
is a relatively common species in forested areas, but we
have recorded this Ladybird near Pines in urban areas. A
recently emerged adult is shown in the lower two
photographs, showing a complete lack of any red
pigmentation at this stage (early August).
