Calvia quatuordecimguttata
"Calvia quatuordecimguttata occurs in a confusing variety of colour forms, but is most commonly a dark beetle with large, cream-coloured spots. It can always be distinguished from other other lady beetles by its shiny pronotum (the pronotum is the plate right behind the head).

Scientific source:

"They are sometimes called Fourteen Spotted Lady Beetles, but that common name is also applied to another species that occurs in Ontario, Propylea quatuorodecimpunctata. Calvia quatuorodecimguttata is perhaps better referred to as the Cream Spotted Lady-beetle, which is the name used for this species in Britain. Common names, like the "fourteen spotted lady beetle" often refer to different species in different places, and lack the accuracy of scientific names. Both Calvia and Propylea have only one species in North America, so you are being explicit enough by just by calling them "Propylea" and "Calvia"."
