Main article: Chilocorus stigma on Wikipedia


In the Japanese text for the insect when it is captured, the ladybug is referred to as chitchai (ちっちゃい?), a colloquial, cuter version of chiisai (小さい?), which both mean "small". Both puns refer to its tiny size, and, in Animal Forest e+, its cuteness.

Ladybugs are considered lucky in most cultures in the world. The name varies depending on the country, with Ladybird and Ladybeetle both being acceptable. The original derivation of Ladybird was from the belief that during the time aphids destroyed crops, farmers prayed to Virgin Mary for assistance. Ladybirds became the answer to solving the crisis, and they became known as the Beetles Of Our Lady.
