Could be nyererei. It doesn't look like sp. 44 to me, though.

There is no chance that the first picture is a pure nyererei. The red color in a nyererei is confined to the upper half of the body and the lower half should have black vertical bars with yellow or yellow/green between the bars. It definitely looks like a hybrid to me. Maybe a mix of nyererei and Hap #44

The last picture could be a Hap #44. In the US we see quite a bit of variation in the location and quantity of red in the Hap #44. But my best guess is that this one is a hybrid as well.
