Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Broad-Banded Grasshopper

Trimerotropis latifasciata Scudder

Trimerotropis latifasciata

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.
