UK Ladybird Survey

7-spot ladybird on borage

The UK Ladybird Survey aims to encourage the recording of all species of ladybird found within the UK.

Ladybirds belong to the scientific family Coccinellidae. In Britain, some 46 species belong to this family, although only 26 of these are recognisable as ladybirds.

On this website you will find lots of information to help you find and identify species, and online forms so that you can record your observations.
