Pack Forest , Pierce County, Washington, USA

Also found on the Linden by Karl Volkman. These were very small and hard to see. It would stand to reason that these would also be multicolored asian. Not sure what they are eating, but I'm thinking the white nymph may be a clue.


Moved from Ladybird Beetles.

Not multicolored Asian - yay!
Harmonia axyridis is completely black at egg hatch. These have white spots on the first abdominal segment.

suggestion - Cycloneda
Newly-hatched C. polita are just like these, w/ the white spots on A1:

Not a positive ID to genus because 1st instars are not often illustrated and I don't have much else to compare these to. The similarity is striking, though, and the genus is widespread and common in that area.
