Variable ladybird

These photos show the larval and adult stages of *Coelophora inaequalis* (Fabricius, 1775), Variable ladybird. This is one of two ladybirds known to enjoy *Aphis nerii*, the Oleander aphid. Thanks Nicholas Martin, scientist and Honorary Fellow of the Entomological Society, at Plant & Food Research for these great photos. These will help us identify the ladybirds on our swan plants.
