This golden ladybug type was found on the Oregon coast. Does anyone know what it is

It looks to me like a member of the Chrysomelidae family, genus Calligrapha. You may be able to narrow it down from this page for the genus on Bugguide - I can't do side by side pattern comparison on this iPad and there are several similar ones:
