These large, beetlelike insects were once found in forested areas throughout Quon. Unveiling their encased wings for flight causes the ladybug's brilliant red shell to splay, displaying two dorsal, jet-black circles. These resemble a pair of oversized eyes, and are intended as a warning to potential predators. The ladybugs were viciously hunted by adventurers during the Crystal War in order to develop new armor, eventually seeming to disappear from Vana'diel. For many years, it was generally accepted that no ladybugs existed in Vana'diel after the end of the Crystal War.
