2 Edinburgh Caterpillars
Saw these 2 in Holyrood Park in a rocky area of grasses and rock rose. Any ideas for identification?

1. dark arches? You don't give a length here, there are a couple of micros which are also similar. Even then you really have to be doing a dot to dot, wart to wart check to seperate Dark/ Light/ Reddish Light arches. I still don't trust myself with these and always try to rear thru.
2. I don't think it is angle shades, just do a quick goorgle and you will see what I mean, but other options are aslo few! If it had been a bit later in May I would have gone for Powdered Quaker, but it seems really too early, especially for so far north. It could be Large ranunculus but can't find anything to positively compare like for like.
So I have to say sorry, but I can neither confirm or give a positive alternative to both.
