The one on the irght (at least) looks like a larval Assassin Bug (Reduivdae) or relative. See, for example, http://bugguide.n...view/51330

They are larvae of true bugs, but no Reduviidae. The thick antennae identify them as Coreidae, most likely they belong to Coreus marginatus. Identically looking larvae of this very abundant species can be found on Rubus etc. also here in Germany these days. The adults are mostly found on Rumex in spring and also on Rubus in late summer.

Thank you!

I appreciate the explanation that you give with the name. I always learn something when I visit!

Coreus marginatus for sure - once I had a chance to rear them from eggs.
