New ladybug atlas for the Netherlands

This video says about itself:

14 November 2011

This is a video I created about the life cycle of a ladybug, specifically the seven-spotted ladybug.

Translated from Dutch entomologists Jan Cuppen, Vincent Kalkman and Gerrian Tacoma:

2 July 2015

In 2015 and 2016 we are going to map the distribution of the Dutch ladybugs, with the goal of publication of an atlas in 2017.

In the Netherlands there are more than sixty ladybug species.

Besides forty fairly large, colourful and easily recognizable ladybug species, in the Netherlands there are also more than twenty species of the Scymninae subfamily. These are often small, hairy and difficult to name.

Below is information about all Dutch ladybugs.
