Abstract

A new species of fossil grasshopper, Mioedipoda reisereri Stidham & Stidham, is the first insect to be described from the Miocene (15.5 million year old) Buffalo Canyon Formation of west-central Nevada. This fossil is identified as an oedipodine and is the oldest supportable band-winged grasshopper from North America. This species appears to be a primitive oedipodine and is perhaps the sister taxon to extant band-winged grasshoppers.
