This grasshopper occurs only in Florida where it lives deep within rosemary bushes. It is active only at night where it moves to the outer leaves to feed. Because rosemary is the only host plant for this species, conservation of the scrub and high pine ecosystem are essential for its continued survival.
Habitat: Sandy ridges of scrub and high pine
Florida range: This species is only found in association with rosemary in central and southeastern Florida
Host plant: Rosemary Ceratiola ericoides
