''Psyllobora vigintiduopunctata'' , the Twenty-two Spot Ladybird (often written as 22-spot Ladybird), is a 3–5 mm long ladybird commonly found in Europe . Unlike most other ladybirds which feed on aphids, ''P. 22-punctata'' eats mildew — especially from umbellifers and low-growing shrubs .

A Finnish name of this beetle, ''22-pistepirkko'', is the origin of the name of the popular band.
