These specimens are in great shape!
the lower nymph in this photo is definitely not E. criddlei, but E. simplicoides. E. simplicioides has that distinctive color pattern with the pair of rectangular pale markings on tergum 4 and no median markings on the other terga.
The upper specimen is probably E. criddlei, but seems to have more extensive pale markings than specimens from further west.
