Got a number of these in my garden in South London/Surrey. Sorry pics not great but please can anyone id?
The orange one on the left is a pupa, and the other two are larvae of a Ladybird. They look to me like Harlequins, but I can't be sure.
Here is a photo taken today in the Wildlife Garden.
I hope this helps.
We are overrun with these, is it a bumper year for ladybirds ? I reckon there are probably a couple of dozen in the garden at the moment (they are crawling on bamboo). I've never even seen them before this year.
This is definitely a Harlequin. Compare photos of larvae here. And keep an eye on the harlequins here.
Thank you all so much! Really surprised they are Ladybirds! Quite pleased, the brambles behind our back fence is crawling in blackfly, so lots of food for them! Thanks again x
