We recognize the important role open data plays in furthering conservation goals and expanding scientific knowledge – it's why we created the Vermont Lady Beetle Atlas as a free public resource.

Our occurrence data is compiled from multiple sources: a historical publication from 1976, the Lost Ladybug Project, historic records and collections across from across Vermont, and any new species reported to the Vermont Atlas of Life (VAL) on iNaturalist.

You can explore and download our data by visiting VAL’s Integrated Publishing Toolkit. You can also view and download all records at the Vermont Lady Beetle Atlas on iNaturalist.

If you use this data, please cite us and send us a copy of the report or publication. Finally, data management takes time and money. Please consider supporting the atlas by making a donation to our parent project — the Vermont Atlas of Life.
