Help with caterpillar ID

I've had mixed success with identifying caterpillars recently. These two were found at Dancersend Reserve. The second was on bramble, but not sure about the first. Any ideas?

  1. Just from the pictures my suggestions would be possible early stages of Emperor and Grey Dagger. If they are recent pictures the former wouldn't fit and possible not the latter. I'm not at all confident with either of these, but suspect both might be early stages, so may well look different to fully grown larvae.

  2. Hi Mick, when were these images taken?

  3. Hi Mick - i would say you have young Knot Grass and Grey Dagger larvae here.
