During my long layout I consulted my bug book while we started
reorganizing the library.  I discovered (much to my chagrin) that my
Japanese Beetles are actually 12 spotted Cucumber Beetles.  Oops.  To
further confess I found out that our Potato Bugs are in fact June
Beetles and are the adult form of those nasty white grubs.  The
iridescent green bug we call a June Bug is called a Green June Beetle in
this book.   The book I used was "CRITTERS" by Bill Zak.  Sorry for all
the "mis-information".
