Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Clearwinged Grasshopper

Camnula pellucida (Scudder)

Camnula pellucida

Camnula pellucida, the clearwinged grasshopper, is found commonly at mid to high elevations and at lower elevations where moist grasses occur. It is especially common in the Black Hills, Big Horn Mountains, and the mountains of northwest Wyoming but can be found throughout the state. This species passes the winter as eggs and hatches in the spring. Adults can often be found as early as late June. It feeds on grasses, and when populations are dense damage to pastures can be severe.
