Hi everybody,

I know (almost) nothing about ladybirds, but here are two pics taken on May 17th in Bucharest. Please help me to ID them.

P.S. The yellow one is a about half size of a seven-spot ladybird; the large red one is somehow larger than a seven-spot ladybird.

Estonian ladybird

I was in Estonia last week, this was the only ladybird I found and I can't place it - any thoughts?

Just a 7-Spotted Ladybird to add to the thread. I saw this one at Nefyn on the Lleyn Peninsula.

Garden ladybird.

Hi all
Any ladybird experts can tell me what the id of this ladybird is, i thought it may be a scarce 7 spot ladybird but that has been ruled out, i an now thinking of an adonis ladybird. Length 5mm.

Colin.

Yes, Adonis Ladybird, often on disturbed ground.

I think it's Hippodamia notata - those bold spots are rather characteristic. This species is rather common around here.
