Yes, the largish iridecent green ones are also called June Bugs or
Figeater beetles I think.

They can damage lawns for the most part, and the green ones like
fruit.  The brown ones eat foliage of trees and shrubs.  I guess they
can be damaging if there are enough of them.

We call those big iridescent green beetles 'June Bugs.' They do not have
the little white tufts of Japanese beetles, and I believe they are bigger.

done by children.  They had all the paintings up on refrigerators.
