This very lightly marked Harlequin Ladybird (Harmonia axyridis) appeared in the house last night. I suspect it woke up from its hibernation in some pine cones that I brought into the house, which after drying out opened their scales liberating the beetle.
Although now recorded at sites throughout Glamorgan, in Gorseinon I've still only seen two individuals of this alien species that continues to spread across Wales.
