lady beetle~species? - Coccinella septempunctata
West Alexander, Washington County, Pennsylvania, USA

found on wingstem, I am guessing Coccinella septempunctata

Moved
Moved from Lady Beetles.

C. septempunctata - probably damaged in pupa
The reduced size of some spots and the large irregular dark patches are probably due to damage to the pupa while the elytra were developing.

 
oh
how interesting, thanks!
