The food habits of aquatic nymphs of 12 species of the family Leptophlebiidae were determined in a tropical intermittent stream in Venezuela . Three monthly samples of aquatic insects were taken from January to June in 1989. 225 stomach contents were analyzed. The results obtained were compared by the functional feeding groups classification. Species of the Thraulodes and Farrodes genus show significant differences in their diet

Keywords : Aquatic insects; Leptophlebiidae; food habits; functional feeding groups; neotropics.
