Do you get 13 spot out there? Only have a UK guide, but shape, colouration and spot pattern fit your photo.

Thanks Phil,
no idea what we get here to be honest and couldn't find it on google until now but your suggestion looks very good.

Habitat is right too, we're very close to wet heath and swamp.

Many thanks

This is Hippodamia 13-punctata, so yes, the 13-spot. It's a wet meadow species generally.
