Xanthippus corallipes, the redshanked grasshopper, is found throughout Wyoming in all grassland habitats
from dry, low-elevation prairies to alpine meadows. It would appear commonly in this
survey if more collecting were done in the spring and early summer. Eggs and nymphs
can overwinter. At lower elevations adults are most common in May or June. At higher
elevations adults are present through August. It feeds on grasses, but rarely do populations
expand and cause economic damage to rangelands.
