This scarab beetle was uniformly brown with glossy opalescent elytra. Log thin third pair of legs pointed backwards obviously being dragged over the wall surface.
Spotted near a sports field.
Features appear to be characteristic of Melolonthinae scarabs. I have photographed a similar beetle only once before (not on PN) and the opalescence seems to be remarkable feature. Family: Scarabeidae Subfamily: melolonthinae
