I had once named this tiny beetle as Cryptogonus orbiculus based on the information from the Beetle @ SG website. In September 2015, while searching for the parent of the white larva below, I came across some pictures showing that this beetle might instead be a Scymnus species. Another group of beetle with larvae looking like mealy bugs is Cryptolaemus species.
