Hi, my daughter took this photo of this great looking tiny larva, I would love to put a name to it. There were several on grass in rough grassland.
Many thanks for any help.
This is the spiky larva of the 24-spot Ladybird, Subcoccinella 24-punctata. Both larva and adult feed on vegetation especially grasses.
See here for id guide to UK ladybirds.
Hi Bombus, thanks for your ID & that great link to the sheet of ladybird larvae. That will be very helpful.
Glad to see you are still on the forum after welcoming me a year ago
