Date?
Did you actually find this ladybug on January 6? Was it indoors? It seems very odd.
Update, 5/6/2010: I removed the date since I never got an answer and it is most probably a mistake.

Moved from Ladybird Beetles.

I believe these are Laboulbeniales fungi

There are several similar pictures in our ladybird beetle pages.

 
Hesperomyces virescens
Indeed, Laboulbeniales fungi (Ascomycota). The species probably is Hesperomyces virescens.
