Camnula pellucida (Scudder) - (clearwinged grasshopper)

This grasshopper is considered a pest of small grains in northern and western parts of North America. It normally lives in rangelands. The eggs overwinter, hatch in spring and the hoppers might move to cereals in large groups when population densities are high (e.g. when egg densities had been in the order of several 100,000 eggs per per m2). Such hopper bands can cause significant damage. Adults might also form swarms but do not fly long distances. Larger swarms have not been observed in recent times. The adults are of small to medium size with males having a length of about 20 mm and females of about 25 mm.
