Symphylella sp. (Symphyla: Scolopendrellidae) predators of arthropods and nematodes in grassland soils


Pedobiologia, 333: 113-116
Symphylella sp. (Symphyla: Scolopendrellidae) predators of arthropods and nematodes in grassland soils
Of 106 animals collected from 7 grassland sites (5 in Colorado and one in each of Wyoming and Nebraska), 58 had food inclusions, and 55 of these had been feeding on animal prey. Most gut contents comprised soft-bodied arthropods (prostigmatid, acarid, and nymphal oribatid mites, collembolans and symphylans) and nematodes. Fungal material was minor, typically single spores or small packets with the remains of mycophagous arthropods.
