Cool coccinellid - Chilocorus bipustulatus

Cool coccinellid - Chilocorus bipustulatus
Palo Alto, Stanford campus, Santa Clara County, California, USA
May 20, 2015
Size: ca 3 mm?
I found this beautiful little coccinellid on a wooden fence near a creek. A new species for me I'm sure, but I'm having trouble finding a match in BG. Looks distinctive... I'm bummed I didn't get a better pic...

Exochomus?
I did a bit of searching on the web and I wonder if this might be one of the Exochomus?
