''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.
