Xanthippus montanus is a less common relative of X. corallipes.
It is often associated with sandy soils or sagebrush grasslands, and should
be found in suitable habitat throughout Wyoming. This grasshopper is reported
to have a two-year life cycle, with eggs and nymphs overwintering. Adults
were collected from late April through August. It is probably a grass feeder
but due to scarcity it is not considered a pest grasshopper in Wyoming.
