Globe-marked Lady Beetle - Azya orbigera

Globe-marked Lady Beetle - Azya orbigera
Opa-Locka, Rainbow Park Elementary, Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA
May 18, 2011
Size: about 5mm
I've been searching this plant for a while because it is covered with a larva that I submitted previously for ID (and was thought to be some: Scymninae). Today I finally found what I believe to be the adult belonging to the larva. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

AWESOME!
Never seen so many of these at once! I really did not think Coccidulinae had larvae with white tufts like that, so either I'm completely wrong (likely...) or there's more than one species. Keep an eye on the larvae/pupae for what they turn into. WAY cool!
