Aulocara femoratum, the whitecrossed grasshopper, is found in Wyoming's shortgrass and mixedgrass prairies.
It is more common in the northeast and becomes rare in the southwest deserts. Eggs
overwinter in the soil and hatch in June, usually several weeks later than A. elliotti. Adults are present from mid July to September. It feeds primarily on grasses and
can cause economic damge to forage, usually in conjunction with other grass feeders.
