Hi and thank you for providing this site. I’ve got some good pictures (I think) of a beatle. He had lunch with me on my deck today. I’ve looked at a ton of pictures trying to figure out who this little guy is but to no avail, so I have dubbed him Frank for the time being. Do you know Franks official name?

Oriental Beetle

Dear Erin,
We identified this Oriental Beetle,
Exomala orientalis, thanks to Arthur V. Evans excellent book Beetles of Eastern North America where it states:  “This immigrant species from Asia is now established from Maine south to Georgia, west to Wisconsin.”  According to BugGuide:  “adults emerge in late June and July.”
