Cratypedes neglectus occurs throughout the rangelands of Wyoming.
Occasional records have been reported from northeastern Wyoming. It overwinters
as eggs and there is evidence for a two-year life cycle in parts of Wyoming.
Adults are present from early June through August. The species is reported
as a mixed feeder that could damage rangelands in conjunction with other
species. It is rarely abundant enough in Wyoming to cause damage.
