Cream-streaked Ladybird Harmonia quadripunctata (Pontoppidan, 1763)
View available larval and pupal stages
.....
The 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).
