Abstract/Summary

The invasive alien harlequin ladybird, Harmonia axyridis, is a polymorphic species. Melanic and non-melanic individuals can be found in Britain. The UK Ladybird Survey receives occurrence records of H. axyridis including information on colour pattern form. Here we examine the frequency of colour pattern forms, spatially and temporally, and the influence of the different forms on the invasion process.
