Metator nevadensis, a grasshopper of the Great Basin Region,
was found in limited numbers in Sublette County during this survey. They
were collected in areas with shrubs or sagebrush. Adults were collected
in late August. Its feeding habits are not known in Wyoming. The related
M. pardalinus is a grass feeder, but M. nevadensis has never
been numerous enough in Wyoming to cause damage to rangelands.
