Chortophaga viridifasciata, the greenstriped grasshopper, is more common in Wyoming than this map indicates
because it occurs early in the spring. It is common among moist grasses along streams,
rivers, and in lawns. Mature nymphs overwinter and become adults in early spring.
Eggs are laid in May or June and hatch in late July. Its preferred foods are grasses
but it is known to eat some forbs. Any damage to forage would be limited because of
its localized habitat and early spring occurrene in Wyoming.
