Unsure if this is a Christmas beetle species (if so unsure of which species) or if it’s an Argentine Scarab. I do have more photos but don’t know how to attach

Scarab beetle, found near-deceased. We have had Phyllotocus sp. outbreaks, and the pictured taxa bears a resemblance but is more than double the size of Phyllotocus sp. and was uniformly Brown and lacking the black abdomen of Phyllotocus sp.
