June bugs

My office mates and I have a running argument about what is and is not a
June bug.  The native southerners know that the June bug is irridescent
green.  The "imports" say that the June bug is brown (what I always called a
May beetle), and that the green bug is a Japanese beetle.  Neither of these
is a mayfly, which is spindly with gangly legs and transparent wings.

Then there's the whole daffodil/buttercup controversy...
