Hello,
I found this little guy on one of my indoor orchid plants when I was watering them this morning. After looking online, I think it might be a “twice stabbed lady beetle,” which is a very purple-prose name. What do you all think? I have never seen a beetle like this before. It was about 4mm long.

Dear C Westfall,
We agree that this appears to be one of the Twice Stabbed Lady Beetles in the genus Chilocorus that are pictured on BugGuide.
