Among the four species of beetle found were the wasp beetle Clytus arietis, which mimics a wasp, and three species of ladybird (part of the beetle family), including the two-spot Adalia bipunctata

hemocytes are regularly infected with Rickettsia (30).
, the two-spotted ladybird beetle, is a familiar species.
A second explanation is that frequency-dependent mating success may be important in maintaining color polymorphisms as has been found, for example, in the Two-Spot Ladybird Adalia bipunctata
(summarized by Majerus 1994).
Olfactory responses to aphid and host plant volatile releases: (E)-[beta]-farnesene an effective kairomone for the predator Adalia bipunctata
. Journal of Chemical Ecology 30: 741-755.
This statement is analogous to the results where earlier finding on nontarget effects of entomopathogenic nematodes on the larvae of the twospotted lady beetle, Adalia bipunctata
(L.) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) and on the larvae of the lacewing C.
For example, Kalushkov (1998), when evaluating ten species of aphids to discover essential preys for the diet of Adalia bipunctata
(L.) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), concluded that not all prey species offered as food were adequate for predator growth.

(1999) relatan que la fecundidad de Adalia bipunctata
(Linnaeus, 1758) fue reducida en 38%, cuando estos predadores fueron alimentados con pulgones de Myzus persicae (Sulzer, 1776) criados con papas transgenicas para expresar la lecitina GNA, aunque no se observo reduccion en el consumo de presas.
Species native to the Finger Lakes region that were collected in washups by other researchers but were conspicuously absent from our study include; Anatis mali, Adalia bipunctata
, Coccinella transversoguttata, C.
These include Adalia bipunctata
, Drosophila pseudoobscura, D.
