I think it may be a June beetle.

This site specifically says they feed on potato tubers.

I’m going to cry.  Guess it’s time for a trip to the garden center to see if there’s anything I can organically do at this point to try to save the potatoes.  I thought we’d overcome our grub problem but apparantly these start as grubs and then turn into these tater-killin terminaters.
