ladybug ~White and black Ladybug~

Just found this in the kitchen. Is it a Spotted Ladybug - Psyllobora vigintimaculata? Is it rare or unusual? {wrong guess - see below}

First - wow - what a neat beetle! Second, that pattern doesn't look *just right* for the insect you have quoted . . . and seeing as how there are 160 pages of ladybird images on BugGuide . . . suunto? Hello, suunto? Swampy?

This one I've got in my personal file on non-natives. Try Propylea quatuordecimpunctata and see what you guys think. There's light variants of quite a few lady beetles.

Wow! Great job, Lib! That does look like mine! We've spent the last hour finding, catching, refrigerating and photographing this little tiny bug! Here are some shots Roger got~

And now that I know it's an invasive, do I have to feed it to the spiders?

I don't know much about it other than it's non-native. If it's invasive.... it's flying in under my radar. I'd toss a non-native in a spider web. Mommy must feed her spiderlings.
