not easy without the wings

It's a nice image, but these wingless (usually juvenile) aphids are very hard to identify. Also, it makes a very big difference if you can say what plant it was found on, as many species are strongly host-specific. It would be good to see a few identifiable aphids on here, though, so please do add more...

I would have added a plant if

I would have added a plant if I could to be honest, but this is in situ. Maybe a brick aphid? :)

Must be a new species, then...

A brick aphid sounds good - can't argue with that... ;-)

brick aphid

Brick aphid might be the best name for this one 'cause (if it is what I think it is) it turns up everywhere. It is most likely Macrosiphum euphorbiae - a very common polyphagous species.
