Megalocaria dilatata – Giant Ladybug I didn&rsquo;t measure this ladybug, but we are talking half an inch or not far off, in length. This thing is huge!<br />
<br />
I don&rsquo;t see them every day, but not uncommon.<br />

Location is Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. Alongside a stream and paddy fields.<br />

I didn’t measure this ladybug, but we are talking half an inch or not far off, in length. This thing is huge!

I don’t see them every day, but not uncommon.

  1. I've used the synonym Megalocaria dilatata for the species, it seems to be used more often online. Another compliment on how you're sharing things. Just on this day, three epic posts with the species from all angles, and useful info attached. We really can't ask for more :) Posted 3 years ago
    1. Understood Ferdy. Editing to suit.

      Thanks.
