Abstract : An account of solar circumstances (X-ray, optical, radio and magnetic) characterizing the disk transit proton-flare-producing regions McMath 15031 and 15266 is presented, together with corresponding details concerning their identifiable antecedent and descendant plages. Differences and similarities between these proton producing centers are discussed, and they are individually suggested to have constituted responses to instabilities associated with the presence beneath the photosphere of an anomalous region capable of causing strong magnetic flux to appear episodically within the confines of an identifiable solar zone.
