Pruinose May Beetle - Phyllophaga

Pruinose May Beetle - Phyllophaga
Hwy 55 and Sedwick, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
April 24, 2004
Size: 12 mm
Found at light, rather stunned. This species has a distinctive pruinosity on its elytra. It is possibly Phyllophaga micans, which is described as having a pruinose elytra by Dillon, plate LII #2, p. 532. (1) However that description gives the length as 15-17 mm. This specimen has a length of about 11-12 mm (photographed adjacent to scale--not shown here).

Compare a similar specimen from West Virginia, also taken in April:
