Ladybird on rose - Hyperaspis

Ladybird on rose - Hyperaspis
6 miles east of Buckhannon, Upshur County, West Virginia, USA
May 20, 2014
A Chilocorus species, I think, investigating a scale insect on rose.

Moved from Lady Beetles.

agree with Hyperaspis
This looks like one of the "black with two red spots" Hyperaspis that occasionally has small additional spots, which aren't always included in illustrations of species. The black head and small lateral pale area on the pronotum rule out H. signata. This is probably a female, and I may be able to narrow it down at least to group by the pronotal marking.

doesn't look like Chilocorus to me, more like a Hyperaspis
