Chafer Beetle? - Euphoria

Chafer Beetle? - Euphoria
Bullitt County, Kentucky, USA
April 28, 2016
Size: 14mm
Harry beetle. Possibly Brown Fruit Chafer Beetle (Euphoria inda)? Buzzed away after just one shot.

Moved from ID Request.

Euphoria yes, not E. inda
maybe E. sepulcralis. Due to the angle and lighting I cannot tell all what is dirt or maculae on the elytra (if the latter, maybe kerni is a possibility but I do not think it gets east to KY...).

Notice detail of antennae in shadow cast on leaf.
