Author's notes

The Brisbane insects website has good images of this species, confirmed by Dr Adam Slipinski (http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_ladybirds/Netty.htm). They say it is a northern species with Brisbane being quite a southerly occurrence, but ALA appears to have records as far south as Batemans Bay. The ALA website has a good image of an animal with the reticulate pattern on the elytra less complete, like mine, apparently a sign that it has only recently emerged from the pupal case and the black lines have yet to fully develop.
