Found this in my garden (several of them in fact)
Probably a larva of a beetle, but which one? I think it was 5-10mm longStriking black slate colour with a row of white dots down the "spine" and fluorescent orange flashes on the abdomen.
Can anyone help me identify what it is?
It is the larva of the harlequin beetle.
I say it's not at all the Harlequin. I think it's a Seven-spot Ladybird (Coccinella septempunctata).
