Continuing my walkarounds of Bullyland's insects and arachnids, today we look at the lady bug, Coccinella septempunctata Linnaeus, 1758. There are two figures, one with the elytra closed and one with the elytra partially open, revealing the flying wings; both figures were released in 1994. I am not sure if they were marketed at the species level, but the color pattern in conjunction with the fact this is the most common species of Coccinellidae in Europe, makes C. septempunctata the only real possibility!

The figures are 6.0 cm in length (not including appendages), making them roughly 7:1 for an average-sized specimen. It was a neat idea to release this figure in two forms. There are a few lady bug figures out there with exposed hind wings, but not many. Interestingly the underside of the figures are different; the one with closed elytra red and the one with exposed wings black (the latter is correct).

On to the pics:

Like the previously-reviewed rhinoceros beetles and house fly, I have a dollar-store knock off of the closed-wing figure (there was also a smaller version in the dollar store set):

Thanks, I have always been a big fan of 'Bullybugs' too [thanks for this term - LOL; I think I'll use it more].

I have a ladybug's lover at home! It is actually a very interesting review. The figure with open wings is particularly nice. The red bottom part of the other figure feels quite strange and detract a lot from the realism of the figure. I used the chance to put them on correct species on TAI. I tend to think most of these generic ladybirds are 7-spotted ladybirds but it is better to wait for your knowledge before moving them to the exact species pages. Very Happy

Very nice! The one with closed wings looks pretty simple, but nice as well. It looks great besides its open winged friend! Lovely Very Happy
