    On the subject of Harlequin Ladybirds if you have had a sighting you might like to have a look at this webpage:

    Link:
    Harlequin Ladybird Survey - Record submission form

    ...There are 46 species of ladybird (Coccinellidae) resident in Britain and the recent arrival of the harlequin ladybird has the potential to jeopardise many of these. The Harlequin Ladybird Survey will monitor its spread across Britain and assess its impact on native ladybirds...

    Ah, that's what it is. I saw one the other day and my wife recognised it as:
    "What the *#!@ is that? Quick, get a newspaper and kill it".

    Seems quite a long name but that goes for much of latin animal and insect names.

    Current protocol in keeping up with modern times means the correct way to dispose of these critters is by beating/flattening with an iPad.
