The Seven-spot Ladybird (Coccinella septempunctata), is one of the most common ladybirds in Europe and without a doubt the most well-known. As such, it is the archtypical ladybird beetle.
Its elytra are of a red colour, but punctuated with three black spots each, with one further spot being spread over the junction of the two, making a total of seven spots, from which the species derives both its common and scientific names .
