Hickory aphid - Monellia microsetosa

Hickory aphid - Monellia microsetosa
Massachusetts, USA
August 24, 2008
On the underside of a hickory leaf. One of my photos shows a tiny, wingless nymph, so I believe hickory is in fact the host plant.

Moved from Calaphidinae.
My ID is based on the description here (also on the guide page)

Moved from Aphids.

Calaphidinae, don't remember which genus holds its wings like this....
