The Idaho point-headed grasshopper, Acrolophitus pulchellus, is a rare endemic of the Sinks Drainages of east-central Idaho. Past collections were infrequent and found few specimens. Searches in 1993 failed to find specimens, leading to speculaton that A. pulchellus was extinct. I report rediscovered populations of A. pulchellus based on 55 capture records (10 collected); describe distribution, habitat, morphological, and life history information; and present the first photos of live adult specimens.
