Habitat:
Chorthippus alticola lives in short growing alpine pastures and stony to rocky slopes between 1500 and more than 2200m above sea level.

Remarks:
Chorthippus alticola is endemic to the southeastern Alps and occurs from northern Slovenia and southern Austria (e.g. Karawanken) to Northern Italy, in the west about to Monte Baldo. The Eastern populations, ssp. rammei (Ebner, 1928), e.g. Karawanken, are much more homogeneous in colour than the Western ones in Italy (nominate subspecies with more intense colours, especially more read).
