Ladybug I.D.

Today I found this great website created by the Canadian Nature Federation as a part of their 1995 survey of Ladybugs (also known as Lady Beetles or Ladybird Beetles). They have pictures and descriptions of 16 different species that exist in North America. Using their guide, I was able to determine that these photos (from a previous blog entry) are most likely of the same species, the Southern beetle (Harmonia axyridis). Also known as the Asian Lady beetle, this species has been repeatedly introduced to North America since the early 1900's.
