Phyllophaga vilifrons (LeConte), male
Moved from May Beetles. ID'd from specimen, now a photo-voucher. Thanks Lisa!!

Species is supposed to have a setose pronotum, but character is lacking in this individual. Otherwise, the genitalia are a very good match for P. vilifrons, with only slight variations from published illustrations.
