RE: black beetle red spot

You don't mention the shape of the beetle. There are ladybugs which are perfectly round, which are black with 1 or 2 red spots roughly in the center of their back. They are about 1/4 inch long.

You can go to and search for "ladybug" and you will find more colors than just red with black spots. Some are yellow orange, some orange, some red-orange, and some are black with red spots.
