Abstract Share this page

Leptodactylus mystaceus is distributed throughout Brazil and no information is available about its diet. Here, we analyzed the diet of L. mystaceus from Novo Progresso, Pará, Brazil. We extracted the stomachs of 25 specimens. For each prey category, we calculated the frequency (Fi%), volume (Vi%) and Feeding Index (IAi). Among the specimens analyzed, seven (28%) had empty stomachs and the other ingested eight prey categories (Araneae, Blattodea, Coleoptera, Dermaptera, Diptera adults, Diptera larva, Formicidae, and Lepidoptera), and large amounts of plant material. This suggests that L. mystaceus is a generalist species and Dermaptera was the most representative component of its diet.
