Since I found the Canadian ladybug site, I've been trying to find a ladybug in the field that wasn't the introduced Southern beetle (Harmonia axyridis). I was happy when I saw a different species today at Wollaston Beach Reservation (see image below), but a check at the identification site indicated that it was the Seven-spotted lady beetle (Coccinella septempunctata), another species imported for insect control.
