The.....Fig Beetle

In over 30 years living in Redlands in Southern California, I have never seen this bug. This summer dozens of them have been buzzing around the downtown area, including outside the art gallery where I work. Some people were calling it a June Bug, but I'd never heard of those in the west. I looked it up and discovered it is related, both being Flower Scarabs, but this one is a Fig Beetle, which is more common in the Southwest.
