Artist's Description

Halequin Ladybrd beetle, Harmonia axyridis var. spectabilis. Blck harlequn variant with two crimson spots on wings and white cheek patches. Breakfasting on nettle. Asian l;adybird beetle comes from China and introduced for cotton crops in US, but spread to Great Britain and Europe. Listed in International , UK and US databases as invasive species and pest, not for voracious appetite on other crop pests, but because it preys on 7spot ladybird larvae and dominates population. Widely spread in Czech Republic and densely found in grain crops. It will attack and butt other ladybirds off plants when grazing.
