Very pleased to see this beauty yesterday!

Just love their partially translucent pronotum!

Shawbury Moat - Shropshire

Lovely to see the next generation underway, and was pleased to find some eggs that were identifiable, being on the same leaf, as ladybird eggs generally aren't!

Llynclys Common - Shropshire

Before it took off!

Stanmore Country Park - Shropshire

Do love this species!

Was pleased to find a larva in July too!

Main shot taken in Mortimer Forest - larva (in comments) from Bucknell Woods - Shropshire

Been quite keen to find an orange ladybird for some weeks now, after hearing that other people were seeing them. So I was extra pleased to finally find this one last Sunday!

Shawbury Heath - Shropshire

Infected with Hesperomyces virescens it seems!

Nocé - Parc du Perche - France

This orange ladybird just stopped where the sun was shining through the leaf! Really makes those translucent edges disappear!

Brown Moss - Shropshire

Shawbury Heath - Shropshire

Such a cute little face!

Mortimer Forest - Shropshire

'Twas blowing a hoolie yesterday, but I was determined not to spend another Sunday stuck indoors!

Made my day finding this, as it's one of my fave species!

Shawbury Heath - Shropshire

aka orange ladybird.

As you know, I just love their semi-translucent pronotums!

Merrington Green - Shropshire

Was fascinating watching this orange ladybird grazing, by sweeping her head from side to side, on the mildew!

Llynclys Common - Shropshire

Never seen so many as I did along that mildewed sycamore hedge!! From early right up to final instars! See in comments, all viewable large.

The Cliffe - Shropshire

Saw quite a few different ladybirds yesterday, which was rather pleasing!

Halyzia 16-guttata (orange ladybird) above, being one of my fave species, I was extra happy to find one!!

Such beauties!!

Llynclys Common - Shropshire (Aug 19)

Was pleased to find this species in France! As I've said before, I just love their translucent 'visors'!!

Maison du Parc - Nocé - France

Love these distinctive pupae!! Of all the larvae and eggs I found, this was the only pupa and adult (in comments) I saw. Not sure whether the eggs are hers (if it is indeed a she!) or not!

The Cliffe - Shropshire

Possibly my fave ladybird species! (Orange ladybird)

Shawbury heath - Shropshire

Was pleased to find a pupa as well as another larva (in comments) on Sunday. I love that you can see the eyes already with the pupa! The pronotum is already translucent, as it is as an adult.

Aston Locks - Shropshire

Der Sechzehnfleckige Marienkäfer, der manchmal auch Sechzehnfleckiger Pilz-Marienkäfer genannt wird, ist etwa einen halben Zentimeter groß,. Er hat ebenfalls die für Marienkäfer typischen, bulligen Körper und den schwarzen Augen. Außer den Augen gibt es keine Übereinstimmungen mit unseren einheimischen, jedenfalls keine farblichen: Ihr gesamter Körper ist sowohl auf der Ober- als auch auf der Unterseite hellbraun bis orange gefärbt und statt der sonst üblichen schwarzen Punkte auf den Deckflügeln besitzt Halyzia sedecimguttata weiße Punkte und zwar, wie der Name bereits erahnen lässt, 16 an der Zahl, also 8 Punkte auf jedem Deckflügel.

You might well remember this loving couple from last year, this is a pair of Orange Ladybirds I found at Colwick Woods on a wooden handrail. This is a different POV.


This was an ever so ambitious handheld focus stack of 34 images, as could be expected there was some movement (Mainly from the one on top), but I managed to edit around it. I used an F/6.3 aperture, ISO 400 and a 1/160 shutter speed, a diffused flash was also used as this was in the middle of woodland.


Please see comments for other images.

First pupa I've found for this species! Love that the 'pronotum' is already translucent!

Cinderhill Woods - Kent

Orange Ladybird 16 spot, leaving the scene! Happy Wing Wednesday. Have a great day ;0)

Halyzia sedecimguttata


Photographed in my Kent garden.

The orange ladybird (Halyzia sedecimguttata) has 12-16 white spots. It overwinters in leaf litter or sheltered positions on trees and eats mildews. Considered until 1987 an indicator of ancient woodland, it has become widespread since it became common on sycamores.

Not a great shot, the little darling didn't want to pose, just getting ready to fly!

ein unerwarteter Besucher

sehr starke Ausschnittvergrößerung

Wiki sagt: "Die sowohl tag- als auch nachtaktiven Tiere sitzen meist auf Blättern, von denen sie den Mehltau abfressen."

Huch, an mir gibt´s aber keinen Mehltau !!!
