Katie Murray, of The University of Stirling, will deliver this Aberdeen Entomological Club seminar entitled: The march of the harlequin ladybird. It will be held at the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen.

The harlequin ladybird is a notorious invasive species. In the UK, this invader is now the most common ladybird species found in areas of South East England and has been spreading north, causing a decline in some native ladybird species. I will talk to you about the invasiveness of the harlequin and the potential for native ladybird parasites to utilise this invader.
