Strange Little Bug...any ideas? - Cinara

Strange Little Bug...any ideas? - Cinara
Sharps Chapel, Union County, Tennessee, USA
June 30, 2008
Size: 1/8"
I occasionally find these on evergreen trees. I have not been able to id this one...any help would be greatly appreciated.

Moved from Aphids.


Do you know specifically what kind of tree this was?

Aphid or adelgid.
Pretty sure this is an aphid of some kind, but I have never seen adelgids up close....

Thanks Eric
After your hint, I started researching this more. They look like Genus Cinara - Giant Conifer Aphids. Thanks for the guidance!
