Abstract

The feeding behavior of the cave pseudoscorpion Maxchernes iporangae Mahnert & Andrade 1998 was studied in the laboratory. We also investigated aspects such as preference and frequency. Nymphs are more active in prey capture. Cannibalism is uncommon. The frequency of feeding of adults was about once a month, with an increased rate for females during the reproductive period.
