Chrysochus auratus Fabricius
Was lucky to spot these colorful beetles, even though it was obviously at the wrong time haha.
Sorry for the mistake, they look very similar. Should've noticed they were found in Europe, haha. Correction has been made. =)
Chrysolina cerealis is found in Europe and to my knowledge is not found in North America. While the colors of Chrysolina cerealis appear in stripes, Chrysochus auratus seems to have more "blended" iridescence.
