Spharagemon campestris

Spharagemon campestris is common on high-elevation rangelands and mountain foothills. It prefers thinly vegetated grasslands and forest openings on coarse soil. Eggs overwinter in the soil. Adults are present from late July to September. At higher elevations a two-year life cycle may be possible. It is a mixed feeder but prefers grasses. It can be moderately abundant but does not damage rangelands to a significant degree.
