Abstract: Abstract:This study aimed to analyze the microhabitat use and diet of the lizard Gymnophthalmidae Anotosaura vanzolinia (Dixon 1974) in the Complexo Aluízio Campos (7° 16' 34" S, 35° 53' 7" W), an area of the Caatinga in the Campina Grande, Paraíba. We studied a total of 12 transects by active searching during the daytime. In each sample, habitat and microhabitat types occupied by the specimen were categorized, together with solar incidence and soil type. For all individuals, morphometric measurements were pe… Show more

“…Dryadosaura nordestina is found in the northeastern portion of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, from Rio Grande do Norte state to northeastern costal Bahia state (RODRIGUES et al 2005, CAMACHO & RODRIGUES 2007, DELFINO & SOEIRO 2012, DE OLIVEIRA & PESSANHA 2013. Our data confirms the geographic pattern suggested for the species in its description (RODRIGUES et al 2005) and provides a considerable increase in known localities for the species.…”

“…Our data adds Gastropoda, Dermaptera, Chilopoda, Araneae, and insect egg and larvae as part of the species diet. Bachia bresslaui (Amaral, 1935) (COLLI et al 1998), Proctoporus species (DOAN 2008), N. ablephara (SANTOS et al 2012), Anotosaura vanzolinia Dixon, 1974(DE OLIVEIRA & PESSANHA 2013, Potamites ecpleopus (Cope, 1876) and Potamites juruazensis (Ávila-Pires & Vitt, 1998) (VITT & ÁVILA-PIRES 1998), although presenting ants and insect larvae in their diets, do not show volumetric importance for those prey categories (VITT & ÁVILA-PIRES 1998). Likewise, D. nordestina also presents a not volumetrically important high number of ants but indeed a relatively notable volumetric importance of insect larvae.…”

“…Colobosauroides cearensis feeds on both sedentary and active prey, as do other species of the Ecpleopodini tribe (Teixeira and Fonseca 2003, Maia et al 2011, Oliveira et al 2018. However, the higher rate of ant consumption in C. cearensis is unexpected, because the Autecology of the Brazilian lizard Colobosauroides cearensis frequency of Formicidae usually is low in gymnophthalmids, indicating that ants are a relatively unimportant part of their diets (Mesquita et al 2006, Doan 2008, Anaya-Rojas et al 2010, Maia et al 2011, Santos et al 2012, Oliveira and Pessanha 2013, Dal Vechio et al 2014, Oliveira et al 2018. Ants are avoided by most lizards, owing to the harder exoskeletons and wide range of defense mechanisms of ants (Abensperg-Traun and Csiro 1997).…”

“…Like other gymnophthalmids, Colobosauroides cearensis feeds on a variety of small arthropods (Doan 2008, Oliveira and Pessanha 2013, Garda et al 2014, Oliveira et al 2018; however, there are interspecific differences of the relative importance of prey consumed. Thus, Leposoma scincoides Spix, 1825 consumes primarily Aranae and Isopoda, whereas Micrablepharus maximiliani (Reinhardt and Lütken, 1862) prefers Orthoptera and Blattaria (Teixeira andFonseca 2003, Dal Vechio et al 2014).…”
