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.
