Unusual ladybug, spots on head - Calvia quatuordecimguttata

Unusual ladybug, spots on head - Calvia quatuordecimguttata
Windsor Junction, Halifax County, Nova Scotia, Canada
August 31, 2014
Size: 5mm
Spots are unusally large and the head appears to have 2 large spots as well, never seen anything like this one. Even the orange color was different, looked pale orange.

agree with C. quatuordecimguttata
