Hi there! Love your site! Found a couple of pics that resemble our bug, but this one’s much greener. Pretty big, about an inch or so. Found it on the cement while shopping, so we moved him to a greener bushy area, then he flew off. Kids thought he was quite cool!
Thanks for all your bug info!

Green June Beetle

Dear Franke’s,
Thanks for sending your photo of a Green June Beetle,
Cotins nitida.  We have been seeing our own west coast relative, the Fig Eater or Green Fruit Beetle, Cotinis mutabilis, buzzing around the carob tree.
