red aphids on goldenrod - Uroleucon

red aphids on goldenrod - Uroleucon
Ackworth, Warren County, Iowa, USA
August 22, 2009
Size: ~2 mm
Hundreds of aphids were on stems of Canada goldenrod (Solidago canadensis) in grassy old field.

Moved from Aphids. Three species in this genus are recorded as feeding on Solidago canadensis; at some point I might see if there's a way to differentiate them from a photo (see the reference on the guide page).

Moved from Frass.

Picture is clear and hostplant is known, so it may be possible to narrow these down.

Moved from ID Request.
