    The first two are most likely moth cats. The 3rd one is the cat of the Autumn Leaf (Doleschallia bisaltide)

    first two are tussock moth larvae (different species)
    1. Noctuidae, Lymantriinae
    2. Noctuidae, Lymantriinae, Nygmiini - possibly in the genus Orvasca (= part of Euproctis, sensu lato)

    cheers,

    Roger.
