Fourteen-spotted Lady Beetle larva - Propylea quatuordecimpunctata

Fourteen-spotted Lady Beetle larva - Propylea quatuordecimpunctata
Richmond Hill, York Region, Ontario, Canada
July 1, 2007
Size: ~ 6 mm
On Sedum, near aphid colony. I'm convinced that this is the larva of this species, since it's been the only Coccinellid species that I've observed on the Stonecrops.

Yes, P. quatuordecimpunctata
I've captive-reared P. quatuordecimpunctata this summer, and this individual appears to be a 3rd instar of the species.
