Habitat:
Chorthippus nevadensis inhabits stony mountain slopes and screes with scarce vegetation in altitudes usually above 1600m (most often 2400-3000m in the Sierra Nevada).

Life cycle:
Chorthippus nevadensis is inconspicuous and well camouflaged in the screes. Adults are found especially between July and October.

Endangerment factors:
Chorthippus nevadensis is endangered especially by changes in land use and global warming, both especially in lower altitudes at the margins of the small range.

Remarks:
Chorthippus nevadensis is endemic to S-Spain where it lives especially in the Sierra Nevada range, but also on some of the adjacent mountains (provinces Malaga, Granada, Almeria).
