A population of Taeniopoda reticulata in the region of Boca del Drago on the island of Isla Colon in the Bocas Del Torro Archipelago of Panama: June 15 – July 31, 2004.
The individuals in the population I observed were generalists and fed on every green plant available in the study site. These grasshoppers were also documented feeding on Hibiscus sp. flowers and once on a noni (Morinda citrifolia) fruit. Both nymphs and adults feed on Hymenocallis sp., although nymphs were never observed eating any other type of plant matter. Adults often ate the dried or damaged edges of plants before feeding on the more turgid and healthy material and occasionally drank from pooled water on the leaves.
