scarab sp. - Serica scarab sp. - Serica

Serica sp.
Several spp. of Serica have the male smaller, bi-colored (pronotum dark, elytra lighter) while the female is larger and unicolorous. The best way to see this is if you can find them mating. The medial groove on the pronotum suggests S. blatchleyi Dawson.

 
Thanks Phillip
The other Serica in the guide are unicolored, so I wouldn't have known to put it here.
