January 7, 2018
Had apparently been hitchhiking out of CA for several days when I found it. A very similar-looking scarab was later discovered alive; that one had greenish hints on elytra.

This is strange, because the only cetoniine I have ever seen in the local area is Cotinis mutabilis.

Was discovered dead with innards oozing from tail. It looks like one of the brown Euphoria scarabs - confirmation appreciated.

Note: After reading comments on a frassed pic, this should be Protaetia fusca.
