The known grasshoppers of New Mexico are arranged alphabetically according to genera and species. For each fact sheet, "Size" refers to length from anterior of head to end of forewings. "General Distribution" refers to a species' distribution throughout its known range. "Distribution in New Mexico" is a list of counties based on general maps produced by the NMDA, USDA records, and records from specific specimens in collections at the USDA (Roswell office), NMDA, NMSU (Entomology, Extension, and Biology collections), D.C. Lightfoot Collection, and D. Ferguson Collection. "Habitat," "Host," and "Time of Year" information are based on the literature and our own experience. The last refers to the time of year when adults are found. "Notes" focus on key features for identification and summarize economic status. The use of subspecies was avoided, with one exception (Schistocerca alutacea).
