Cordillacris crenulata, the crenulatewinged grasshopper, is common in the shortgrass prairie of eastern
Wyoming, where it lives in patches of blue grama or buffalo grass. Eggs overwinter
in the soil and hatch in late May or early June. Adults are present from early July
through August. It feeds on grasses and has a preference for grama grasses. Its small
size keeps it from being an economically damaging species, but it may damage rangelands
in conjunction with other species.
