Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Pardalophora apiculata (Harris)

Pardalophora apiculata

Pardalophora apiculata is an uncommon grasshopper found in Wyoming east of the Continental Divide. This large grasshopper lives in dry mountain meadows as well as open prairies and weedy roadsides. In colder climates eggs overwinter in the soil and hatch in the summer and the next winter nymphs overwinter. Adults are present from May to July. Its feeding habits are not known in Wyoming. It is not considered a pest species.
Ref: Otte 1984, and Capinera and Sechrist 1982.
