Johnston County, North Carolina, USA

Size: 7mm
This scarab also came to the porch light. It has a rusty red pubescence kind of all over. The closest image in the guide looked like Diplotaxis sordida, but the N.C. State University insect collection database lists many other species present in the state that don't appear in Bug Guide. Any help in getting an ID is appreciated.

D. sordida
I agree thats what this probably is, although other shots would be nice. It's the only pubescent species in SC (Harpootlian, 2001).

 
Specifics?
What specific additional shots?
