She's No Lady (bug)

Via the photography blog 10, 60, 200

If you see this creature, either kill it, or if you're not the violent type, get far away. It's an evil bug, and it bites. It looks a lot like a ladybug, but this is a different insect, known as the "Japanese Biting Beetle".

Here's a real ladybug (from The University of Kentucky Department of Entomology)

Some friends and I were menaced by these monsters while in Evanston for a college reunion a few years back, and I assumed that they were ladybugs gone bad.

Thanks to Richard Magahiz for the link.
