All of our June Bugs are black in Texas--it certainly looks like one.

Definitely in the family Scarabaeidae, but it does not look like a member of the subfamily Melolonthinae that includes all the species commonly referred to as June beetles or May bugs. It might be in the subfamily Cetoniinae, such as a Cremastocheilus or Osmoderma sp. See and for examples.
