Pseudopomala brachyptera is most common in Wyoming's northeast
but may occur wherever areas with taller grasses are found. In Cheyenne
it was collected from a vacant lot with taller grasses along Crow Creek.
The eggs overwinter in the soil and adults are present from mid July through
August. Although it is a grass feeder, low populations and limited habitat
area prevent this grasshopper from damaging rangelands except in conjunction
with other species.
