When people think of Ireland, the first thing that is conjured up is probably not the image of the 10-spot ladybird, but the country certainly has them. They also happen to have 26 other species of ladybirds, all of which are documented on this site. Created by the National Museums of Northern Ireland, this site is “dedicated to the study and recording of Irish ladybirds.” A fine place to start would be the “Ladybirds of Ireland” area, which contains some basic facts about the local ladybird population, along with detailed information about each type of ladybird. The site also contains an extensive photo gallery of ladybirds, including information about the Harlequin ladybird, which has had a deleterious effect on native ladybirds.
