I found this bug on my back door and I have never seen one like it before. We have warmer weather than usual so I thought maybe that is the reason for the unusual bug. It looked like a ladybug in shape and size, but its color was kind of reddish brown with gold stripes. Any ideas?

Hi Karla,
We thought this resembled a Leaf Beetle in the genus
Calligrapha, and our suspicions proved correct when we matched your individual to images posted to BugGuide of Calligrapha (subgenus Bidensomela) bidenticola.
