Given that ladybirds/ladybugs are considered to be “Any member of the family Coccinellidae,” there’s a huge degree of variation in what they look like. Worldwide, there are over 5,000 species, and there are over 450 species in North America, alone.
One of the most well-known Coccinellids is known as the Harlequin ladybug, Japanese Lady Beetle, pumpkin ladybird, or Asian Lady Beetle, depending upon your locality. Harmonia axyridis is orange-yellow with between 0 and 22 spots, and is considered an agricultural pest in many areas. I remember them absolutely covering the entire south side of my childhood home, and not being able to get inside without going through the stink-mess.
