Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Orphulella pelidna (Burmeister)

Orphulella pelidna

Orphulella pelidna is known to occur in limited numbers throughout Wyoming in its preferred habitat among grasses in moist areas along prairie rivers and streams. Adults can be found in July and August. Because of limited habitat this grasshopper has no economic importance in Wyoming.
