28-spotted potato ladybird

Epilachna vigintioctopunctata

On early summer, on the plant that we found the ladybird, we also found some eggs and larvae. Both eggs and larvae only found on the bottom side of leaves. The plants are short. Larvae and eggs are usually not be seen unless you turn those leave over. 
The larvae are creamy white in colour with black spiny hairs. We believed they are the 28-spotted Potato Ladybird larvae. As the adults, the larvae also feed on plants. We took two home, with some leaves of the host-plant as their food.
Few days later, they turned into pupa. The pupa looked the same as the larvae except darker in colour.  
Another week later, they became the 28-spotted Potato Ladybird adults.
