Abstract


Pseudopaludicola saltica (Anura, Leptodactylidae) apresenta ampla distribuição, do centro-oeste ao sul do Brasil, sendo comum encontrar machos da espécie vocalizando em áreas próximas a pequenos cursos d'água. Lycosidae é uma família de aranhas amplamente distribuída por todo o mundo, possui hábitos de alimentação generalistas e atividade tanto noturna quanto diurna. Aranhas são consideradas predadoras oportunistas e consomem anuros, em especial na estação reprodutiva destes animais. O presente trabalho reporta o primeiro registro de predação do anuro P. saltica por uma aranha (Lycosidae) no Cerrado brasileiro, município de Rio Verde, estado de Goiás, Brasil.

 RECORD OF PREDATION OF Pseudopaludicola saltica (ANURA: LEPTODACTYLIDAE) BY WOLF-SPIDER (ARANEAE: LYCOSIDAE).  Pseudopaludicola saltica (Anura, Leptodactylidae) presents a wide distribution, from the Midwest to the South of Brazil. Calling males are commonly found in areas near small water courses. Lycosidae is a family of spiders widely distributed throughout the world, has general feeding habits, and both nocturnal and diurnal activities. Spiders are considered opportunistic predators and consume anurans, especially in the reproductive season of these animals. The present note reports the first record on predation of the anuran P. saltica by a spider (Lycosidae) in the Brazilian Cerrado, municipality of Rio Verde, state of Goiás, Brazil.
