Assaria , Kansas, USA

Size: 1-1/4"
Would like some expert opinion on the ID of this larvae. I at first thought this must be some sort of fritillary larvae, however another person has suggested tortoise shell beetle larvae. I have other pics of the coal black larvae if that would help. I do not know the plant this is on, but there were also some on the salsify. These were found in an undisturbed ditch which has not been mown.
