multiplicata in southwestern of Coahuila feeds on ants, homopterans
, and hemipterans as the numerically most common food items, but that volumetrically, beetles represented more than 40% of the stomach content followed by larvae of lepidopterans and homopterans
Diets of female eastern pipistrelles consisted predominantly of Homopterans
and Coleopterans (ca.
Studies of ant-homopteran mutualisms focus primarily on protection from predators as the critical means by which homopterans
benefit (Buckley 1987).
(27.1%) also were common, with leafhoppers (Cicadellidae) accounting for all of this order.
Females more often fed on large prey bundles prepared by the host (21% of feeding events) than did males, who were never observed feeding on prey bundles, but rather fed on small prey (tiny dipterans and homopterans
) caught on the spiral strands, but unnoticed by the host.
Also in Indiana, Brack (1985) found dipterans, trichopterans, coleopterans (including the Asiatic oak weevil), lepidopterans, homopterans
, hymenopterans, neuropterans, and plecopterans represented, in decreasing order of importance, in the diet of this species.
It has a generalized diet that includes nectar, insects, seeds, carrion, and honeydew secreted by Homopterans
(Woodworth 1908, Horton 1918, Mallis 1942, Flanders 1943, Creighton 1950, Markin 1970a).
Hemiptera were split into suborders Heteroptera and Homoptera, because the digestive systems of most homopterans
have filter chambers that concentrate nitrogenous compounds (Borror et al.
Across all week, the diet was dominated by coleopterans (59.3% volume), hemipterans (23.3% volume) and homopterans
Finally, the toxicity of Bacillus thuringiensis strains, some of them isolated from homopterans
, was evaluated using coarse bioassays.
and dipterans were the dominant groups within the arthropod assemblage [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 5 OMITTED].
on branches were Cicadellidae followed by Aphididae.
