This is a small scarab beetle (adult). The scarabs are a very large group of beetles which includes familiar beetles such as the Japanese beetle, May/June beetle, chafer beetles, flower and fruit beetles. I don't have an immediate answer as to an exact identification of this species, but it is a scarab beetle.
