Chloealtis abdominalis is found in grasslands mixed with ponderosa pines at moderate elevations in most
of Wyoming's mountains. It is never very abundant. Eggs are laid in rotted stumps
or logs and hatch in the spring. They feed on a variety of grasses but are never abundant
enough to damage forage production except in conjunction with other species.
