Re: June vs. Japanese beetles

You're right.  Again, this could be a regionalism or, more likely, "June
Bug" is a blanket name for the whole genus, Phyllophaga, or perhaps several
genera in its family, Scarabaeidae.  I really don't know from bugs.  Or
maybe the pic I found was mislabeled.  Your Junebugs (June Beetles) do look
much like Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica, in shape.  But they're
obviously different in coloring .   Japs have a copper shell, tinged
green/gold - actually quite pretty.  Thanks for sending the link.  Pictures
make things so much clearer.
