I've got them all pover my summer sprouting broc.  When you  'squidge' them they just crumble into dust.

my broccoli's got lots of aphids hidden in the tips - which i discovered after cooking - but luckily before eating!!!  

don't think they're spiders - from zooming more only 6 legs i think.

they look like mealy cabbage aphid (Brevicoryne brassicae) to me.  difficult to see on the pic but the big fat ones may have been parasitised they go big like that and die.

Had a lot of black aphid this year over my beans and fruit trees too
