A new guest in the garden, Oenopia conglobata [1]. I hadn’t seen this fairly common species before, inside or outside the garden.

Oenopia conglobata

It is beautifull species with it’s characteristic subtle pale pink color. The large spots along the wingshields spread into the major round spots forming a ‘musical note’.  The neckshield has six to seven spots and is often colored in a lighter tint that that of the wingshields.
