Sea-lavender Ladybird  Nephus limonii

The status of this species on the British list is rather confused.

It is a highly cryptic species that is almost identical to Red-patched ladybird.

It has a different habitat requirement as it is stongly associated with Sea-lavender, Limonium.

A photograph of this species can be found on the Finnish website www.leppikset.fi/lajit.html
