  1. This is a freshly emerged Ladybird in the process of "pumping up" and extending its wings. The spot-pattern is not yet visible (if any), so it is quite hard to ID. If at all possible it would require a better view on the shape and patterns of pronotum and head. If you have extra images with different viewing angles for that, please add those.
    For comparison, here is a freshly emerging Coccinella septempunctata:
    Coccinella septempunctata emerging from pupa Rather old series with old camera and horrible lighting ... for explanation with this image:<br />
