Ladybug Beetle pupa-ID Please - Hippodamia convergens

Ladybug Beetle pupa-ID Please - Hippodamia convergens
Skidaway Island, Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia, USA
June 8, 2014
This Ladybug pupa photographed on Asclepias tuberosa, Butterfly Milkweed. I suspect it is the Convergent Ladybug Beetle - (Hippodamia convergens), as on May 30, 2014 we released 1500 adults of this species to serve as biological pest controls of the Oleander Aphids (Aphis nerii) on our three milkweed species Asclepias Tuberosa, A. incarnata and A. curassavica.

agree with H. convergens
The tubercles and setae visible on the shed "skin" at the rear of the pupa match Hippodamia, and in addition to the release of that many adults, H. convergens is the only species you're likely to find in eastern Georgia.

 
Abiqual- thank you for having
