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.
