This bush-cricket prefers nutrient-poor meadows and semi-dry grassland. The main habitats are submontan and montan grassland steppes, dry margins of herbaceous vegetation and forest edges with dense herbal vegetation. Important features of all habitats are a warm and dry climate and well-structured vegetation mainly in middle altitudes (400-800 m asl).
Less frequent species with fragmented distribution, mainly in C and E Slovakia, missing in lowlands.
