Unidentified Scarabidae...

I found this beetle on a street in Italy. It was dead I think, or very stunned and only had one antennae twitching when I found it.

I released it somewhere green and moist, hoping it would either recover or at least, die peacefully and not be crushed by someone walking along the street.

I found it in a town near Genova (Italy) on the west coast.

I have tried to identify it on the net, but the closest I can come up with is the Euphoria Inda (Bumble Flower Beetle - Scarabidae.

It was so beautiful with its large antlers. You can see from the proportion to my hand, it would've been around 4 to 5 cm long.

 

I thank anyone in advance for helping me to identify this beautiful creature...
