Red Admiral, Comma 1st instars Larva

The Red Admiral and Comma 1st instar larva are very similar when they first emerge from their respective ovums.
This is a 1st instar Red Admiral Larva that has just emerged from it's ovum
This is a 1st instar Comma Larva that has also just emerged from it's ovum. The hairs on this Comma Larva
are a lot denser and longer than that of the young Red Admiral Caterpillar
