Harlequin Ladybird Survey
Title: Harlequin Ladybird Survey
Creator: Roy, Helen; Brown, Peter; Ware, Remy
Publisher: Biological Records Centre
Abstract: The harlequin ladybird, Harmonia axyridis, is the most invasive ladybird on Earth. It has already invaded much of northwestern Europe, and arrived in Britain in summer 2004. There are 46 species of ladybird (Coccinellidae) resident in Britain and the recent arrival of the harlequin ladybird has the potential to jeopardise many of these. The Harlequin Ladybird Survey will monitor its spread across Britain with the help of online recording forms and assess its impact on native ladybirds. Images and clearly arranged information facilitate the identification of the beetles. [Information of the supplier, modified]
