Cool! Thanks, Mike!

Moved
Moved from Dusky Lady Beetles.

probably Scymnus semiruber or S. rubricaudus
In most of their range the two spp. can be distinguished by the pronota, but unfortunately in Florida they both have entirely-pale pronota like this. I'm getting a bit more of a S. semiruber "gestalt" here, but I can't say for sure.

 
Thanks, Abigail!
