The easiest way to submit records of ladybird observations you have made is to do
so using our on-line recording forms. After submitting a record we encourage you
to email us a photo so that we can verify it.
Incidental Records Form - for a particular
If you have been out somewhere (perhaps for a walk, shopping or at a garden centre...
) and you have noticed a particular species, you can record just that incident.
Fill in one form per incidental record. So, if you saw a 7-spot
ladybird in your office and a pine ladybird in the park, you should fill in two
All Species Records Form - from a site

please use this form instead. Record the numbers of all the species you observed.

If you have records to submit in spreadsheet format, please email them in an Excel
