Unknown Ladybird Beetle - Coccinella

Unknown Ladybird Beetle - Coccinella
Medford, Jackson County, Oregon, USA
June 7, 2006

Moved from Ladybird Beetles.

Seems safe to move to genus level. I agree with Eric that C. californica is likely, given location and pronotum markings.

This is a recently-emerged adult, so the spots have not become evident yet. This will most likely be a species in the genus Coccinella. In fact, C. californica, if memor serves, is spotless anyway:-)

Sounds good. Thanks for the ID.
