Ladybird ID?....

Hello All,

 

Snapped this fellow in the garden the other day, at first I thought that it might be an 'eyed ladybird' but now that I've had a proper look on the computer I'm doubting myself due to the cross like marking across it's back....

 

Any thoughts would be much appreciated?....

    I think it is likely to be a Harlequin Ladybird - the great invader - they do vary quite a lot and seem to be easily the most common around my garden nowadays (Sheffield, UK)

        certainly the ones I have seem bigger than other species .... maybe someone else could confirm - or otherwise!

            It is a Harmonia axyridis.
