Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Chloealtis abdominalis (Thomas)

Chloealtis abdominalis

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.
