Which Twice Stabbed? - Thalassa montezumae
Coconut Creek, Broward County, Florida, USA
March 19, 2014
A Twice Stabbed ladybeetle. . .

Moved
Moved from Scymninae.

Thalassa montezumae
The metallic blue color with large orange spots are unique to this species in North America.

Hyperaspis? Thalassa?
Moved from ID Request.

 
Hope I give you a Florida record
For this one. :-)

 
not sure what you mean
16 spp. of Hyperaspis(1) & Th. montezumae are known to occur in FL (leaning towards the latter)

 
Yes I see that, what I meant was a
Florida ENTRY (record) for BUGGUIDE, for the animal- that I agree it also might be. Unless I'm looking at the BUGGUIDE data wrong?

Best,
Kenny
