Grasshoppers of Wyoming and the West


Trimerotropis gracilis (Thomas)


Trimerotropis gracilis is most common in the desert and dry grassland of western Wyoming. It prefers areas with bare soil between sagebrush or patches of grass. Its population diminishes in the denser grasses of eastern Wyoming and does not occur east of Wyoming. Adults are common from mid July through August. Although widely dispersed, population densities are usually low. It is not considered an economic pest in Wyoming.
