Hi Mark, can we rule out the Dune Chafer ? It might be safer to go with a Scarabaeidae ID to cover both species as I'm not sure we can tell one way or the other for sure.

I had completely forgot about Dune Chafer. Not sure there is enough detail in the photo to make a definite id but I'm sure you are right.
I would say Anomala dubia might be a better bet given habitat, and Hoplia philanthus is also pretty similar too
