Brachiacantha ursina?

Moved from Lady Beetles.

yes, B. ursina
At that size, with the orangish tinge to the markings, it must be B. ursina. The two most similar species, B. decempustulata and B. felina, are slightly different in size and shape, and have either cream/white spots (B. decempustulata) or red spots (B. felina).
