Redwinged Grasshopper

Arphia pseudonietana (Thomas)

Arphia pseudonietana, the redwinged grasshopper, is found throughout Wyoming rangelands and prefers areas with patches of barren ground. Eggs overwinter in the soil and hatch in late June. Adults occur in August and September. It is a mixed feeder but prefers grasses. It is never numerous enough to damage rangeland forage except in conjunction with other species.
