Pseudopomala brachyptera is most common in Wyoming's northeast but may occur wherever areas with taller grasses
are found. In Cheyenne it was collected from a vacant lot with taller grasses along
Crow Creek. The eggs overwinter in the soil and adults are present from mid July through
August. Although it is a grass feeder, low populations and limited habitat area prevent
this grasshopper from damaging rangelands except in conjunction with other species.
