Ash Gray Ladybug

Ash gray ladybug - Olla v-nigrum, also called ashy gray lady beetle, is an unusual ladybug completely different from common the colorful species although in the same family (Coccinellidae). Coccinellids range from typical red with black spots to spotless to yellow or black or even mottled brown. Some Coccinellids are of the stereotypical ladybug shape, while others resemble more narrow beetles with long legs. Female ladybugs are generally larger than the males. You won’t see these ladybugs too often because they are mainly arboreal and seem to like taller trees and the pest insects that hang out there.
