Found this beautiful fairly large beetle on the window of my office at Wabash College, Crawfordsville, Indiana. Late June. Hope you can help.

Grapevine Beetle

Dear Ecuaprof,
This is a Grapevine Beetle and they are generally a pale yellow color with six dark spots on the elytra.  Some individuals lack spots and some Grapevine Beetles are more orange in color.  Here is a BugGuide image for comparison.  Your individual appears to have encountered some trauma.  One elytron appears damaged and the thoracic region appears to be separating from the abdominal region.
