    All the pics of ladybird larvae I have seen show them as elongated and not at all looking like miniature ladybirds. I’ve just found a bunch of hatchlings, black with red spots and I can’t figure out what they might be. Do I need to give them a few hours to stretch out into ladybird larvae?

    Pics coming …

    Juvenile ladybirds are a larva and sometimes described as looking like a tiny crocodile. By the photographs I would pick them to from the Bug family, possibly one of the shield bugs.
