Aphid - Trama

Aphid - Trama
Bailey Island, Cumberland County, Maine, USA
June 1, 2009
Size: 1.9 mm long
Found on the root of a dandelion. A cluster of about 10 of them. If these are root mealybugs, I cannot find a match. Any ideas?? Perhaps Trama rara that is exclusive to dandelions.

Moved
Moved from Mealybugs.

Aphids, not mealybugs
These are root aphids, genus Trama, probably Trama troglodytes.

 
Trama
Thanks for this. This may be Trama rara, a species that is exclusive to dandelions.
