Miami, Florida, USA

Size: just under 1/2"
I browsed through the beetles but didn't see anything matching. They are quite docile and just seem to feed on flowers all day- at least I think thats what they're doing.

Moved from ID Request.

On second thought...
I'm thinking they look more like something in/near Euphoria:



(Same subfamily; different genus.)

 
Yes. .
that one looks right! I see that many of the photos of that species are from Florida as well.

 
Yes, Dark Flower Scarabs
They are all over this weekend. I was taking pictures today at A. D. Barnes Park and Indian Hammocks and saw a bunch of them.

How about...
Asian Mango Flower Beetle (Protaetia fusca)?



Of course, I'm sure there are other possibilities as well, so hold on to see what the beetle experts have to say.
