I found this beetle in my house yesterday and am very curious as to what type of beetle it is.

Dear curious Jax,
It did not take us too long to identify your beautiful beetle as an Orange Spotted Fruit Chafer, Mecynorrhina passerinii, which we found on the Biodiversity Explorer website on the Web of Life in South Africa. Our initial web searching did not turn up any additional information.
