    It's agreed by most folk nowadays that Harlequin ladybirds are here to stay ... we will never be able to eradicate them

    so I wouldn't worry about whether it's a Harlequin or a native ... we get both in this garden ... Im just glad they both eat my aphids 🐞

    generally speaking, I THINK the goodies have symetrical markings.

    You're right @Hostafan1 ... but if you look at my link above, so do the Harlequins 🤣

    I think now would be a good time to post a picture of the larvae so they don't get killed because they look scary.

    Thanks @Dovefromabove, for the link. Looking at that I think it's a seven spot. I had seen another o e only a few minutes before and it looked different to this one but it flew off before I managed to get my phone.
