Ladybirds belong to the scientific family Coccinellidae. In Britain there are nearly 50 species within this family, although only 26 of these are recognisable as ladybirds (conspicuous ladybirds). Of these, many species could be encountered in gardens, parks and urban areas. Join Helen Roy and Peter Brown for an introduction to the recognisable, common species found in gardens.
