It looks like an aphid (plant louse).

Are they beneficial at all?

No. They suck the juices out of plants.

I should add they do feed beneficial insects. Is this inside or outside?

Outside, there don't seem to be any major bug problems on the terrace but today out of nowhere 100's of fungus gnats appeared... any organic solutions to share?
