Melanoplus bowditchi, the sagebrush grasshopper, is known from areas with sagebrush in eastern Wyoming.
It is under reported on this map because of difficulty in identification. Eggs overwinter
in the soil. Adults are present from July to September. It feeds exclusively on sagebrush
and may prefer sandsage. It is probably not abundant enough to affect sagebrush distribution
