The Marsh Lady Beetle, also known as the Swamp Lady Beetle, is native to the United States and Canada. It’s found primarily in damp areas with low-growing vegetation. Its wing covers are primarily cream colored with black spots.
The Marsh Lady Beetle’s Latin name (Anisosticta bitriangularis) means “two triangles” (“bis” – twice; “trangularis” – of or belonging to a triangle). This refers to the two areas on this species’ pronotum where three spots are clustered in a triangular shape.
