Overview
"The only northeastern North American species of Psyllobora, P. vigintimaculata, is a small (2-3mm), yellowish species that occurs across the continent from Labrador to Alaska and south to Mexico. Unlike most lady beetles, which are carnivores, Psyllobora species are mildew-feeders, and have mandibles armed with rake-like rows of small teeth used in gathering up spores and conidia."
