Trimerotropis latifasciata is found throughout the rangelands
of Wyoming. In this survey it was most common in the sagebrush grasslands
of the Big Horn Basin. Eggs overwinter in the soil. Adults were collected
in late July and August. This species is a grass feeder and is reported
to eat western wheatgrass. It is not abundant enough to damage rangeland
except in conjunction with other species.
