Cotinis mutabilis

I originally thought it may have been a Cotinis nitida (June Bug), but further research led me to believe it’s actually a Cotinis mutabilis aka Figeater Beetle.

How do I know? because of where they live. Figeater Beetles live in the southwestern part of the United States, while June Bugs live on the East Coast. I found this little fella in my backyard the other day…

Comments? They are much appreciated! ;)
