Is this Chilocorus bipustulatus? - Chilocorus bipustulatus
Weehawken, Hudson County, New Jersey, USA July 25, 2009 Size: 4.2 mm
Looks like a dead ringer for Chilocorus bipustulatus, but that sp. is listed as a European introduction found only in the San Joaquin Valley in CA. Which probably means is something common on the East coast that I just haven't managed to find yet.
In an urban backyard garden on underside of a leaf of a small shrub in the Rosaceae (I can find out what, if it matters; white flower spikes attracting bumblebees).
