Phyllophaga
Can you tell if there is one or two spurs on the hind tibiae? If one, then this is P. prununculina. If two, then this may be hard to ID as it is a female (especially without specimen in-hand).

 
Two
Definitely 2 spurs on the hind tibiae. Can you suggest a good key to work the species ID out myself?

Phyllophaga sp.
unlikely to ID to species with this one image.

 
more photos
What specific photos would help with species ID? Let me know and I'll do my best to get them.

 
details of...
tarsal claws (middle and hind); clypeus; pronotum. For many of the eastern species, male genitilia are very important, but this looks like a female (based on size of antennal club).

 
thanks
for follow-up images. I will try to key out tonight when I get home if someone doesn't get to it first!

 
Thanks
for all the help on this.
