Abstract

We studied the diet and prey selection of Desmognathus brimleyorum in southeastern Oklahoma relative to salamander size class and availability of prey. We found significant differences in prey consumed by large and small size classes. Also, by comparison with invertebrate samples taken in one salamander habitat, prey selected by D. brimleyorum was significantly disproportionate to its availability. Dipterans were taken more commonly than encountered in the habitat, and isopods taken less commonly.
