I found some beetles as grubs and they recently emerged, they appear to be flower beetles but I'm not sure. Any ID would be great, and any care tips as well. Thanks!

Also, they were found inside of a rotten log and appear to be around 3 and 1/2 to 5 mm long. And the genus might be cremastocheilus

So far, it just looks like Cremastocheilus harrisii (I might be wrong)


Add me on instagram: Eleodes_caudiferis, aka Eleodes hispilabris on Beetle Forum (this account I need to try to recover)...

They are definitely not Cremastocheilus, I can tell you that much.
 
I'm thinking they are something more along the lines of Valgus, maybe Valgus seticollis

Darklings: Alobates pensylvanica, Coelocnemis californicus, Coelus ciliatus, Eleodes clavicornis, Eleodes hispilabris, Eleodes nigrinus, Embaphion cf. contusum, Embaphion muricatum, Eusattus muricatus, Meracantha contracta, Platydema ellipticum, Tenebrio molitor, Tenebrio obscurus, Tenebrionid sp, Zophobas morio. Ground beetles: Pasimachus sp. "Arizona". Click beetles: 1 Alaus melanops larva, Ampedus sp, Elateridae sp larva, Elaterid sp larvae, Melanotus cf. similis, Melanotus sp, Pyrophorus noctilucus. Also: A bunch of cockroach species, spiders, isopods, and a cat. For a full list of my invertebrates, See my blog! http://invertebratedude.blogspot.com/

No problem! :) Well I've never cared for them before, but there is a thread from someone who kept and reared WC larvae on Bugguide.

Darklings: Alobates pensylvanica, Coelocnemis californicus, Coelus ciliatus, Eleodes clavicornis, Eleodes hispilabris, Eleodes nigrinus, Embaphion cf. contusum, Embaphion muricatum, Eusattus muricatus, Meracantha contracta, Platydema ellipticum, Tenebrio molitor, Tenebrio obscurus, Tenebrionid sp, Zophobas morio.
