    In the ladybird C. inaequalis, the striped elytral pattern (C. inaequalis var. veranioides) is shown to be dominant over the pattern of partly fused spots which is more common in the Sydney region. A pattern in which the spots were fused in a zig-zag manner was also obtained in the laboratory and appears to be caused by a third allele recessive to both the others.
