Harmonia vigintiduosignata - TwentseWelle The other day I stumbled on a box with African beetles while doing some work in the museum TwentseWelle in Enschede (Netherlands) and it contained a Ladybird beetle I could not readily identify. Turns out it wasn&#039;t too hard: It looks a lot like a Harmonia and it has 22 spots, so when I found the name Harmonia vigintiduosignata for Africa somewhere that was a good lead :o)<br />
I have only found two other images of this species on the internet, so I decided to augment that, even if these are just quick snapshots of an uncleaned museum specimen.<br />
There is no date on the location tag, but the name Tanganyika suggests probably somewhere between 1961-65. Coccinellidae,Coccinellinae,Coleoptera,Harmonia,Harmonia vigintiduosignata,Ladybird,Tanzania,TwentseWelle Click/tap to enlarge Species introCountry intro
