New Pest on Roses?

Hello,
My rosebushes have been healthy until today I noticed many of the flowers in bad shape, and there happened to be 3 or 4 of these green bugs on them - could anyone tell me what these bugs are and if they are the likely cause? Thanks!

Although the photos are from different angles, could it be the beneficial Aphidoletes aphidimyza?

Unfortunately I don't think it's that! This didn't appear to have wings. here's a close up of it:
