Its nooooooooo problem at all
Its nooooooooo problem at all, I have been IDing Buprestis and other North American Bups for the past eight months, in the west coast there are only a couple things that look even remotely like B. aurulenta; Theres B. inticata, B. adjecta, and B. prospera.

Can't Help...
with ID, but that is an incredibly beautiful beetle! Nice find!

 
Gorgeous!
