Moved from Aphids.

Common "svelte" genus :)
Eulachnus is a skinnier genus, with those long legs too. They only feed on Pine as far as I know, so it was probably looking for a host.

Aphid does look right
There are some towards slender, and not all have "tail pipes".

Of course, yours is more svelte.

Thanks Ron........
It looks like some of the small dark colored aphids I've found amongst the bamboo leaves nearby. I was under the impression that aphids were plump in the abdominal area (more junk in the trunk :^)) with those dual pipes.
