Coccinella transversalis from spider web This Transverse Ladybird (Coccinella transversalis) was stolen from a spider&#039;s web near the Bromo volcano on Java, Indonesia. After cleaning off the spider goo I was surprised to see it come back to life :o)<br />
Not the best images, but I&#039;ve added this image because here the pale pattern is quite white, whereas it is often pale orange/reddish on many specimen.

''Coccinella transversalis'', commonly known as the Transverse Ladybird or Transverse Lady Beetle is a species of ladybird beetle found from India across southern and southeastern Asia to Malesia and Australia.

The Transverse Ladybird was first described by Danish zoologist Johan Christian Fabricius in 1781 as ''Coccinella transversalis'' and still bears its original name. Fabricius' description predated Carl Peter Thunberg's naming of this species as ''C. repanda'' by several months.
