Habitat:
Chorthippus sampeyrensis occurs on Alpine pastures and rocky slopes in altitudes between 2000 and 2300m.

Endangerment factors:
Chorthippus sampeyrensis has become rare on Colle di Sampeyre and is more found on somewhat higher, steep and rocky slopes south of the pass (global warming?.

Remarks:
Chorthippus sampeyrensis is endemic to the southern Cottic Alps (NW-Italy, on Col de Larche also in France) and has only a very limited range between the Colle di Sampeyre and the Stura di Demonte.

Chorthippus sampeyrensis is very close to Ch. cialancensis and there are transitions. I believe more in a subspecies status of Chorthippus sampeyrensis.
