Adalia 10-punctata - 10-spot ladybird in Leicestershire and Rutland

This small ladybird can be found with a variety of patterns to the elytra, but the pronotum is quite distinctive.

The presence of the 7-spot ladybird (seen in Northumberland), almost sitting on the smaller 10-spot gives a sense of the relative size of these beetles.

More details

See the UK Ladybird Survey page for the 10-spot ladybird.
