SEM of ladybird over a flower

Ladybird in flight. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a seven-spot ladybird beetle Coccinella septempunctata, flying over a flower. The outer wings of the ladybird are strengthened into a hard covering called the elytra (red, black spots) to protect the delicate flight wings (long, white) found beneath. These elytra are raised in flight, while other transparent hind-wings (not seen) propel the insect. Seven black spots are found on the red wing covers of this ladybird. The red and black colours are a warning to predators, because this beetle is able to squirt distasteful fluids. Magnification: x2.9 at 6x7cm size. Magnification: x7.5 at 7x6 inch size

Harmonia axyridis
The Harlequin is a voracious predator and easily out competes our native ladybirds for food. This introduced alien threatens our 46 native ladybird species, as well as many other UK insects, including butterflies and lacewings.
It comes in a range of patterns or colour variations (forms or morph). Originally from Asia, it was probably imported on flowers from Europe.
The Harlequin problem started in North America, where they were thought to be an attractive biological control agent. H. axyridis is still being sold in the USA and continental Europe for pest control.
Its numbers are increasing annually.
