Green Beetle with lots of Black Spots

I found this in my room yesterday and took some pictures before I let it go. I live in Nashville, TN. I was surprised to see a beetle of this size, much less in my bedroom!
The picture I have of him are in a regular size drinking glass, so I would imagine the beetle is about 1.5″ in length. The tiles he’s sitting on are about 2×2 kitchen counter tiles.
We will be posting your photos of a female Eastern Hercules Beetle, Dynastes tityus, along side a letter with images of a male. The male has spectacular horns. The Eastern Hercules Beetle is sometimes called a Rhinoceros Beetle.
