Abstract/Summary

The first confirmed report of the harlequin ladybird, Harmonia axyridis, in Britain was of a male melanic found in Sible Heddingham, Essex, on 19th September 2004. Subsequent media attention has brought to light many other reports of this beetle, some pre-dating the Essex record, but none from before the summer of 2004. With only two exceptions, all reports have been from the south-east of England, and it appears that although widely distributed and established in south-eastern counties, the harlequin is at present largely restricted to this region.
