Lady Bug Larvae

by Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. on April 1, 2011

These lady bug larvae live on a leaf at the Dallas Arboretum.  I was there for Dallas Blooms and my companions could not understand why I was taking pictures of bugs instead of blooms.  Not to worry, I got some pictures of them, too, but will save them for another time.

I want to say here that it is deep study of nature. I am failing to judge either the larvae is in deep sleep or taking food from leaf.

A lot of countries not named America call these insects “ladybirds”. And more and more Scientists are trying to claim that these insects should not be called ladybug since they are not really bugs. Their more preferred terms are “lady beetles” or “ladybird beetles”. But I still think that the term ‘ladybug’ still has more ring to it.
