Donation to the museum

Blathers, the curator of the museum, will unwillingly accept insects for display. After donation, Blathers will speak of the ladybug.

In Animal Crossing

"Ladybugs are one insect I thought might appeal to me. Then I made the grievous error of touching one. This vile fluid appeared from someplace and... Oh, it was everywhere! Blech! Utterly appalling!

In New Horizons

In New Horizons, upon donation or selecting "Tell me about this!", Blathers the curator will say (with abhorrence):

"Yes. Yes. Ladybugs are quite beloved thanks to their tiny round shape and adorable spots. To that I say BAH! The fact of the matter is, some have stripes instead of spots. And SOME have no markings at all! No, I shall never understand why it is said that when a ladybug lands on'll have good luck. I shall only have a fainting spell."


Further information


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.
