Beetles alone may well represent 90% or more of the biodiversity on Earth. There should be plenty of fodder for discussion here.

Martin, I'm quite sure this is Polydrusus formosus - very common in my yard and at the lights at night here in Cocagne.
Polydrusus sp.could be sericus

Derek, my BIG June Bug event happened one evening in May many years ago. A bunch of folks had gathered that da to help build our back deck. I just kept "dealing" pork chops and potatoes on the BBQ; when all were fed, I slipped in to have a bath. As I tried to exit the back door post bath and wearing a caftan type thingie, a June Bug hit me in the neck and d..r..o..p...p..ed. down. Picture an immediate retreat from the door... inside the kitchen and....[oh yes, the caftan came off rather quickly!].
I don't know if was in May or June but when we were kids - my mother inadvertently left the clothes on the line after dark one evening. Little did she know that those garments that she brought in to the house after hours were harboring a very deadly (to her and my sisters' nerves) cargo.
Of course, it wasn't entirely apparent for a half an hour or so that those clothes had attracted a virtual May/June Bug Convention - but - once one got airborne, the others soon followed and all heck broke loss in the kitchen. One flew down my mother's blouse and then another chased my sister down the hallway and up the stairs - eventually entangling in her hair. Even the dog was freaked out and so I as the interim, Man of the House, at the ripe old age of 8 or so - was in charge of 'debugging' the situation. I think it took me 3 or 4 nights to round them all up.
Lol, so long ago and I can remember it like it was yesterday - those flying beetlebugs can sure cause some chaos in enclosed places on occasion.
Thankyou, didn't realize that the May Bug was the same as the June Bug. lol...learned alot today
