Small yellow beetle

I’ve several of these fellows on my garden plants (potatoes, squash, peppers, buckwheat) – I’m assuming they are pests, but would like to know what they are for certain. They are small (about 3/8”), not furry on bottom, but the legs are barbed, yellow body, grayish head. This picture is on a small potato plant. Thanks!
The Rose Chafer will feed on the leaves from a large variety of plants, and if they are numerous, you may have problems with defoliation.
