Halyzia is a genus in the ladybird family, Coccinellidae.


The Halyzia sedecimguttata is identified by its orange color and 14-16 spots on its back.

Halyzia is concentrated in European deciduous forests. They can be found in the edges of woodlands or bushes.
Life cycle

Halyzia, like many insects has an egg stage, a larval stage, a pupa stage and an adult stage. Once the female lays her eggs, they will hatch in 4-10 days. Halyzia will molt many times before it becomes a full grown adult.

Like moths, Halyzia is attracted to light. These Insects will be frequently found in moth traps.

Species within this genus include:[1]

Halyzia feae Gorham, 1895
Halyzia nepalensis Canepari, 2003
Halyzia sanscrita Mulsant, 1853
Halyzia sedecimguttata (Linnaeus, 1758)
Halyzia straminea (Hope in Gray, 1831)
