Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Cudweed Grasshopper

Hypochlora alba (Dodge)

Hypochlora alba

Hypochlora alba, the cudweed (sage) grasshopper, occurs in eastern Wyoming in areas where its primary food plant, cudweed sage, occurs. Its gray-green coloration blends perfectly with this plant. Adults are present in late August and September and may be more common than this survey indicates. It feeds exclusively on cudweed sage and a few related plants.
Ref: Capinera and Sechrist 1982.
