The feedings habits of the "puyen' Galaxias maculatus of Ramos Mexia reservoir, Neuquen, were analysed by observing the digestive tracts of 227 fishes could be grouping in two groups of size, collected during 1983-1984. Stomach contents revealed that G. maculatus feeds primarily on benthic invertebrates (with chironomid larvae predominating), microcrustaceans and hirudinean; hydrocarina, macrophyte material and allochtonous invertebrate are of incidental importance. The species exhibited size and seasonal variation in dietary composition. The data indicate the puyen are benthic-littoral carnivore.
