Mestobregma plattei is an uncommon grasshopper in eastern Wyoming
and probably occurs throughout the state in limited areas. Its preferred
habitat is shortgrasses with areas of barren rocky soil. Eggs overwinter
in the soil. Adults were collected in late July and August. Its feeding
habits are not well studied. It is not economically damaging in Wyoming.
