What are the body part names of a ladybird?


Wiki User

The head has eyes and antennae; behind the head you see the pronotum, or neck shield. Behind that are the elytra or shields. Under the shields you can just see the legs, they consist of parts called, from body to toes: coxa, trochanter, femur, tibia, tarsus.

If you turn a ladybird over you can see the three main body parts of all insects: head, thorax (with the legs and wings), abdomen.
