Borer Beetle: genus Tragidion

Can you tell me what this one is?
I enjoy taking nature pictures and while I was in my winter oat field this weekend I saw this very golden beetle fly into the oats.

Hi Lindsey,
This is a Cerambycide Borer Beetle we did not recognize. We searched BugGuide and found a match with the genus Tragidion, possibly Tragidion armatum brevipenne. Other than an image match, we can’t find much information on the species. The coloration is perfect for Halloween.
