It seems like the Cotinis mutabilis is not very common in the area of the spotting. The habitat of Cotinis nitida however, extends from Maine to Georgia, and as far west as Kansas, with possible population crossover in Texas with their western cousin, the Fig Beetle (Cotinis mutabilis).

Very similar though :)
