Ladybug Nymph.. - Propylea quatuordecimpunctata
Jamaica Bay Wildlife Reserve, NYC, Queens County, New York, USA
June 28, 2010
Size: ~13 mm
I find these everywhere I go bug hunting recently. I'm not sure what that says about the aphid population.

Moved from Propylea.


Propylea quatuordecimpunctata
Very distinctive black and white larvae. Seeing the tip of the rear abdominal segment would clinch it - there's a pointed projection that is distinctive for the species - but there's nothing else quite like it even w/o that field mark visible.

Moved from ID Request.
