Orange lady bug with no spots - Cycloneda sanguinea -
Lake Placid, Highlands County, Florida, USA August 2, 2009 Size: 5mm
Prior to joining bugguide, I thought lady bugs were a species and they just varied in color and spots. I did try to use the guide at discover life, but it came up with multiple possible species without photos to compare against. The white line is a strand of spiderweb.
