Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Slantfaced Pasture Grasshopper

Orphulella speciosa (Scudder)

Orphulella speciosa

Orphulella speciosa occurs uncommonly in the mixedgrass prairie of northeastern Wyoming. It is most common in the grasslands of the Black Hills. Eggs overwinter and adults are present in July and August. It is not abundant enough in Wyoming to cause damage to rangelands.
Ref: Otte 1981, and Capinera and Sechrist 1982.
