Aphid - Cinara

Aphid - Cinara
Dixville, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA
September 25, 2005
Size: 4.5mm
It was on a spruce(black?), and all by itself. Any chance of an ID on this one? It does look different from most other aphids I usually see.

Cinara sp.
Probably a species of Cinara, all of which are conifer aphids. Nice shot!

I know most aphids are hard to ID, so I didn't get my hopes up. Thanks for the excellent work Eric.
