Abstract

We examined the prey caught in L. intermedia webs in one fragment of forest and in the garage of an urban house in Curitiba, Brazil. A total of 693 prey items was recorded in 131 webs. The prey richness was greater in the forest. The results show that L. intermedia is a dietary generalist. We found remains of L. intermedia in the feces of a frog and a bat in the forest.
