Asian harlequin ladybird now dominant species – Telegraph

The Asian harlequin ladybird has become the dominant species in the south east of England in less than four years, scientists have said.

A nationwide survey shows that the insect, which originated in Japan, has gone from a handful of sightings in 2004 to virtually total coverage of the South East and is now found as far afield as Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
