Medium-sized species, this ladybird measures 3-5 mm long. Black and yellow, it is ornamented with a broad black medial line separating the elytra.
The 14-spotted ladybird feeds on a wide diversity of aphids and can also take advantage of a highly varied secondary diet.
This species is highly common. Its period of activity is relatively short: from the end of April to beginning of October.
