They are former aphids. Now they are playing host to parasitoid wasp larvae. In a few days, they will show little round holes where the adult wasps have cut their way out, and are now looking for other aphids to lay their eggs in--definite sci fi thriller material!

1 May, 2011 i will look up parasitoid wasp larvae, thanks very much for that Tugbrethil, i had wondered for ages what they were but would never have guessed this one.
