Aphid - Acyrthosiphon pisum
Licking County, Ohio, USA
June 17, 2005
Found resting on red clover. Cuticle translucent; eyes deep red.

Moved from Aphids.

This is Acyrthosiphon pisum with a very well developed parasitoid larva inside.

of some type. I think the cornicles protruding from the rear-end are an aphid field mark.

I agree.
Great image! You can even see the tracheae through the opaque cuticle! Amazing.
