Found this guy in Richfield, MN on 7/20. It seems to be too orange and have darker spots on the carapace to be a Goldsmith Beetle. Thank you for your time!

Hi Amber,
You are very observant.  This is a Grapevine Beetle,
Pelidnota punctata, and like the Goldsmith Beetle, both are in the tribe Rutelini.
