182. Oh Dahlings, Spots Are So Last Year You Know. They're So Very Passé.

I don't remember ever seeing a no-spot ladybird before. Does anyone know, are they very rare or do I need to get out more?

Great shots, I've heard of ones with no spots, but haven't seen them myself, so this is very interesting!

I think it's a Manbug . . .

Maybe she picked up the wrong detergent! Should have used the colorfast variety!

like kozuka said they are asian ladybugs, in this case it seems it is a [i]Harmonia axyridis [/i]

Ladybugs are beetles and they have a huge family with many many species. We are used to ladybugs with spots, but increasingly we are seeing orange or red bodies with no spots on its body.

some of them get no spots, other get many... they can be rare, or can be common depending if there are many of them on UK, you should search if there is a lot of them, from that specie, in UK, if there is many, they are not rare, if there are not, they are rare hehe

besides, this particular specie invade houses a lot... I remember i had some under my bed during the winter!hahaha
