Los datos de Powell (1977) sobre la biologia de Conocephalus semivittatus en Nueva Zelanda senalan que la especie es muy exitosa en pastizales dominados por diversas gramineas de los generos Anthoxanthum, Bouteloua, Dactylis, Hierochloe, Lolium, Panicum y Stenotaphium; el autor atribuye el valor de adecuacion del ortoptero al grosor de los tallos de estos pastos, pues ofrecen superficies optimas para la oviposicion.
