22-spot Ladybird - http://www.bugbotherer.org.uk/

Psyllobora vigintiduopunctata, the 22-spot ladybird, is a 3–5 mm long ladybird commonly found in Europe . Unlike most other ladybirds which feed on aphids, P. 22-punctata eats mildew — especially from umbellifers and low-growing shrubs.

It is yellow with 20-22 discrete spots. It can be found in meadows on herbevaceous plants and in particular, Hogweed. It winters in grass tussocks close to ground level. It is widespread in Britian to Lancashire and Yorkshire but scarse further north.
