Chrysanthemum Aphids - Macrosiphoniella sanborni - female

Chrysanthemum Aphids - Macrosiphoniella sanborni - Female
Bear, New Castle County, Delaware, USA
May 26, 2008
Size: ~ 1-2 mm
To the naked eye, my Chrysanthemum plant looks as if its stems are covered with black Aphids. It was another pleasant surprise looking at it on a monitor and seeing mostly dark red or reddish brown Aphids and some green Aphids. I did not see any adult green Aphids on this plant but there were some on nearby Iris plants.

Moved from Aphids. Not 100% certain, but seems likely.
