Author's notes

I found this introduced ladybird referred to as punctata in Roger Farrow's book of 2016, but can't find other uses of that species name.

Interesting - it does look very like Roger's illustration, but we have had this thing ID'd as Hippodamia variegata in the past. Have to leave it to Kim to sort out.

Well I never! I agree that it looks very similar. Maybe the classification has changed. Yes, hope Kim can help.
