Beetles of the Dunes

Hundreds of these beetles were burrowing into the sand of the Indiana Dunes recently.

I'm guessing that they're laying eggs that will eventually become grubs that eat the grasses of the Dunes before they become full grown beetles.

This is possibly a type of scarab beetle with relatives in the Japanese and Oriental beetle species.
