Strange invertibrates feeding on blackfly

Observed: 29th September 2013 By: samlansdell

I have an old and dying sunflower in the garden, on which an entire ecosystem seems to have developed based on the thousands of blackfly on the flower, leaves and stem. The latest arrivals to the party are lots of these things which, when curled up, resemble a woodlouse with orange parts. Others were not curled up but I couldn't get a decent picture. A few legs were visible.
