Overview
"One of Ontario's most beautiful lady beetles is the large (around 7mm) Transverse Lady Beetle (C. transversoguttata), aptly named for the distinctive, narrow transverse spots. This distinctive species has become rare in Ontario since the Seven Spotted Lady Beetle appeared here, and I know of no confirmed record of C. transversoguttata in Ontario since 1987. The Canadian Nature Federation conducted a lady beetle survey during the late 1990's and compiled records of lady beetle sightings sent in by school children and naturalists. According to the Canadian Nature Federation lady beetle survey results, both C. transversoguttata and C. novemnotata still occur in southern Ontario, but none of the recent records of these threatened species are backed up by specimens or photographs. Unfortunately, these records probably represent misidentifications. The Transverse Lady Beetle was at one time widely distributed in North America, extending from Labrador to Alaska and south to California, and it is still common in western Canada."
