I watched these aphids for about 10 minutes. The baby comes out and just hangs there until it "hardens". These two photos are about 10 minutes apart. This one first.

Moved from Uroleucon. Thanks for looking that up... and great shot, by the way!

Thank you
for the ID.

Host plant info
Is there any chance you have associated photos that would show what the host plant was? I found a reference that may help (listed on genus guide page).

I looked up my old files and I took these in a large group of Rudbeckia, so I'm assuming that's the host.

Moved from Aphids.

They look similar to
The ones IDed as Brown Ambrosia Aphids which were also called Dactynotus rudbeckiae.

another vote for Uroleucon
you may well be also right about the sp.

Labor? What labor?
Mom doesn't even excuse herself from the dinner table!
