Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Pronotal Range Grasshopper

Cratypedes neglectus (Thomas)

Cratypedes neglectus

Cratypedes neglectus occurs throughout the rangelands of Wyoming. Occasional records have been reported from northeastern Wyoming. It overwinters as eggs and there is evidence for a two-year life cycle in parts of Wyoming. Adults are present from early June through August. The species is reported as a mixed feeder that could damage rangelands in conjunction with other species. It is rarely abundant enough in Wyoming to cause damage.
