Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Melanoplus indigens ScudderMelanoplus indigens

Melanoplus indigens has only been collected once in Wyoming. In the 2009 survey, a special trip was made to Yellowstone National Park. The short winged adult male was collected in late August. The specimen was collected in a sagebrush draw with pines close at an elevation of 7000 feet. M. indigens is closely related to M. oregonensis and M. marshalli. Because of its limited distribution, it causes no economic damage in Wyoming.
Ref: Hebard 1936.
