Orange Ladybird Halyzia sedecimguttata (Linnaeus, 1758)
View available larval and pupal stages
....
A fairly large species, the Orange Ladybird is mycetophagous (fungus eating) and lives on the mildews of various trees. This individual was found on Sycamore. It has been found to be a common ladybird and particularly favours large leaved trees like Sycamore. This is also one ladybird which is likely to be found during the Winter/early Spring months, when the weather is still cool, as my wife and I have come across large numbers huddled together on the trunks of trees, most often Beech.
