I hope that this one can be IDed.


We have quite a few adults but only two larvae, it seems.
This is another one of those intruders from Europe.

Propylea quatuordecimpunctata
Using the key and associated figures(1), this one is certainly Propylea quatuordecimpunctata, based on the medial projection on the terminal (9th) abdominal segment, the strumae each bearing several chalazae, and the coloration, including the head, meso and metanotum, and basal areas of the femur.

Nice image, and we'll use this one as the species reprentative on the larva info guidepage.
