Just found this but in my bathroom and would like to know what it is!!!! (please).
I live in Manhattan. It’s super hot today.
I thought it was a ladybug at first but on closer inspection I don’t think it is…

Polished Lady Beetle

Dear Concerned,
The lack of spots and the white pattern on the pronotum lead us to believe this is a Polished Lady Beetle,
Cycloneda munda, a species pictured on BugGuide where it is also called a Red Lady Beetle, Immaculate Lady Beetle, No-Spotted Lady Beetle or Spotless Lady Beetle.

Location: New York City, New York
