  1. Howdy, this is certainly not Harmonia axyridis, so I've removed that ID and corresponding tags etc. I'm fairly confident that this is just an unspotted form of Coelophora inaequalis, but I do not yet know all Indonesian species of Ladybirds so there may be a surprise lingering somewhere, but I would be quite surprised indeed, so I've decided to add the ID for this anyway :o) Posted 4 days ago
    1. Sure. Thanks so much for the correct ID. Posted 14 hrs ago

''Coelophora inaequalis'', the Variable Ladybird, Common Australian Ladybird or Common Australian Lady Beetle is a ladybird species endemic to Australia, Oceania and Southern Asia. The variable ladybird gets its name from the black markings on the adult elytra, that vary from one individual to another.

''C. inaequalis'' was introduced into Florida and Hawaii as a biological control agent to combat ''Sipha flava'', the yellow sugarcane aphid.
