Masked Chafer - Cyclocephala borealis

Masked Chafer - Cyclocephala borealis
Mountville, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA
June 1, 2005
Size: 13mm
A specimen from my collection. This is a resubmitted photo, since the old one has incorrect comments on it.

I have uploaded a better photo of the same specimen.

C. borealis
This looks like Cyclocephala borealis - they are sometimes quite dark, not the normal 'yellowish' color. As you can see - quite hairy ventrally, and still has the pronotum lighter laterally with faint darker spots.

I'll let it here and you can create a guide page if you want. I would rather have you create the page, since you have information on them.
