Seems to be a true bug which would have piercing mouthparts to suck plant juice. I have never seen them before though.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)

Looks like Aphids to me. They come in all colors.

oh, yes, aphids. Still I have never seen them on my lettuce, but I'm in a much different zone.

Thank you. I sprayed the whole thing with neem oil. Also, they did not move at all. Is that normal?
