Goodness Mick, you are posting some near impossibles. I wish you luck.
This one might be a stonefly; only might mind you!

I'm pretty new here but greetings from Orkney this wild day!

Nope...

Most definitely an Aphid. Note the antenna segments, 3 visible, but rest assured it has 5 per antenna. Then there is the venation, nowhere near as complex as that of a Stonefly.

Thanks for showing an interest, and if you do come up with an ID or 2 they would be truly welcome.

Greetings from Lincolnshire. May 2013 be all you want it to be...

Yes Mick, it was, thanks.
My comment 'might..' above was almost the very first I made in iSpot - forgive me!
