Lady Beetle Keys - University of Minnesota
Keys to adults, pupae, and larvae of seven common lady beetle species. There are very few resources, in print or online, with larval keys, and I've never seen a pupal key before. Though limited in scope, it can be used to ID the most commonly-encountered species at all life stages.

Species list:
Adalia bipunctata, two-spotted lady beetle
Coleomegilla maculata, (pink) spotted lady beetle
Coccinella septempunctata, seven-spotted lady beetle
Cycloneda munda, polished lady beetle
Harmonia axyridis, multicolored Asian lady beetle
Hippodamia convergens, convergent lady beetle

List of Species Treated

Welcome to the Lost Ladybug Project
Across North America ladybug species composition is changing. Over the past twenty years native ladybugs that were once very common have become extremely rare. During this same time ladybugs from other parts of the world have greatly increased both their numbers and range. This is happening very quickly and we don’t know how, or why, or what impact it will have on ladybug diversity or the role that ladybugs play in keeping plant-feeding insect populations low. We're asking you to join us in finding out where all the ladybugs have gone so we can try to prevent more native species from becoming so rare.

List of Coleoptera Collected in Latimer County, Oklahoma by Karl Stephan (2002)
[cite:899478

List of more than 3,500 beetle species collected in Latimer Co., OK (76 pg. PDF)

Ed Riley compiled the original version of this list during the years 2000-2002 as Karl Heinz Stephan (1931-2005) donated sections of his beetle collection to the TAMUIC in College Station, Texas.

In 2014, Mike Quinn began updating the taxa into the list's present form. Most of his changes are denoted within brackets in the notes column. Numerous spelling and taxonomic errors no doubt remain. The first third of Karl's list has been proof read as of June 2015.
