Japanese beetle

Japanese beetle, metallic green beetle (Popillia japonica), related to the June beetle. In the United States, where it was accidentally introduced from Japan in 1917, it is an agricultural pest because none of its natural enemies was established. The larvae live underground and feed on plant roots.
