Chorthippus eisentrauti (Ramme, 1931)


Chorthippus eisentrauti: Mating (Ticino, October 2008) [N] Chorthippus eisentrauti: Male (Ticino) [N] Chorthippus eisentrauti: Female (Ticino) [N] Chorthippus eisentrauti: Habitat at the Monte Bar (Ticino) [N]

Nutrition:
Grasses

Habitat:
Chorthippus eisentrauti inhabits xerothermous habitats as rough pastures, rocky slopes and embankments up to 2100m above sea level.

Life cycle:
The adults are found from late June to late October. I observed them quite numerous in Ticino on Monte Bar between 1200 and 1800m above sea level in late October 2007. First frosts are still survived well.

Remarks:
Chorthippus eisentrauti is closely related to Chorthippus biguttulus and replaces them in the Southern Alps, so in Ticino.
