harlequin ladybird?

I saw this really wierd laybird in my garden today. I think its some kind of harlequin.

 

It was on the marigold for at least 4 hours - the plants are under an overhanging lime tree which is currently exuding loads of sticky goo which many insects can't get enough of.

 

I have seen the website of the harlequin survey - do they still require sitings? Also what do you do if you find harlequin ladybirds - they seem to be considered invasive pests.?

 

I really like the one I saw - so funky with the spots within spots!  ;-)
