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

Yes Joanne, to the best of my knowledge these are common names that people use to describe the same thing; although there are a few related species that look similar.

Danny, a question here... May Beetles and June Beetles [AKA June Bugs] are the same species, are they not?

Is this a May Beetle?

It looks to be a chafer beetle (Dichelonyx sp.), as I posted here

More LOL, Derek!

I'd like to report that on May 31rst at 9:55pm, the first June Bug of the year has started tap-tapping on the bedroom window. They just don't get it, June means June and not a minute before it's commencement (see  below for last year's premiere arrival). ;)

european bumblebee mimic scarab beetle genus trichiotinus

July 3, 2013 I found what I think is Trichiotinus assimilis in Salisbury lagoon area. Bug guide did not have it on the map so I submitted it. They moved it into Trichiotinus then into T. assimilis and now removed it from there so who knows.

Derek, you certainly made me LOL. We have also been seeing June bugs in our neck of the woods for just a short while now.

I'd like to report that on May 31rst at 11:55pm, the first June Bug of the year started tapping at the kitchen window. How dare it arrive 5 minutes early!
