Parenthesis Lady Beetle - Hippodamia parenthesis

Parenthesis Lady Beetle - Hippodamia parenthesis
Colchester, Chittenden County, Vermont, USA
September 4, 2012
feeling confident that this is Hippodamia parenthesis, but I could not find an image where the "parentheses" on the abdomen had been so completely filled in with black. The closest match I could find, including around 100 images from the Lost Ladybug Project, was this record from bugguide. Thought that the unusual color pattern warranted posting.
