Dark brown scarab beetle about 1cm in length. Scarabs or scarab beetles of the family Scarabaeidae (Latreille, 1802) are stout-bodied beetles, many with bright metallic colors, measuring between 1.5 and 160 mm. They have distinctive, clubbed antennae composed of plates called lamellae that can be compressed into a ball or fanned out like leaves to sense odors. The front legs of many species are broad and adapted for digging.
Spotted on the ceiling of the garage.
