Dissosteira carolina, the Carolina grasshopper, is found throughout Wyoming in areas disturbed by humans.
It is common in farmyards, field margins, roadsides, and vacant lots in towns. The
yellow-edged black hindwing is diagnostic in identifying this grasshopper. Eggs overwinter
in the soil and adults are present from mid July to September. It is a mixed feeder
on forbs and grasses, but because of its low densities and preferred habitat it does
little damage to rangeland forage.
