Anomala undulata

Anomala undulata
Snowhill Road north of Cabin Branch Creek, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
May 3, 2007
Size: 9 mm
Found at a light. Seems to be an Anomala species, but I am not sure which one--it does not seem to be Anomala marginata, the one species I've seen before. I still have the beetle chilled, and will get a ventral view, which should be helpful in keying with Phil's text (1). Looks somewhat like Stephen's Anomala undulata:

but I'm not sure at all. Any ideas on species would be appreciated.

Moved from Anomala.

Compared - it is A. undulata
definitely not marginata - go to the end of the key and see what you think - two similar spp, both common in the Carolinas, one spring, one early summer. The scutellum is very useful.
This is a very good shot of undulata.
