Found this beetle on my driveway end of August and looked at many photos online and can’t seem to find anything quite like it and only found one. Can you identify?

The beautiful metallic coloration of your beetle, a trait that is shared with many members of its family, has resulted in a familial name of Jewel Beetle, but alas, your individual, Buprestis viridisuturalis, which we identified on BugGuide, does not have a common name other than that shared with others in the family.
