CLOSED: Help with aphid i.d.'s

Benton, KY(Zone 7a)

I think this is the Asian Wooly Hackberry Aphid. If so, what is the proper name for the critter?(family,genus,species) I have looked at aphid images till I'm blue in the face, but can't figure this one out.

Again, searching for name...the only images that mine match up with are something called 'tomato aphid'...that obviously isn't a well used common name, because I can't find anything on this one either.

Any ideas?

As for the second...

Parthenogenesis... you know, a female giving birth to live young without being impregnated by a male... isn't nature wonderful?!?! :-)
