I am not sure what these aphids are, but I have read that Cavariella aegopodii is one species that eats honewort. These species alternate hosts between willows (Salix sp.) and Apiaceae (Carrot-family) plants like honewort. There are no willows directly around where I took this photo, but there are some within half a mile away.
