I think it is a Chrysobothris species BUT
I am more interested in the wasp. Check out Cerceris fumipennis images and let me know if that is your wasp. You can go back there and find the wasp agggregation and gets lots of buprestids. The wasps usually hang out together and make burrows in open gravelly areas near woods. They prey on buprestids exclusively.

 
Gotta be it
on both, thanks.
