We assessed the composition of the diet, amplitude and degree of overlap of the trophic niche of sintopic tadpoles. The diet consisted mainly of diatoms, with a higher proportion of small algae, but different morphological guilds. R. arenarum had a more pronounced overlap of trophic niche with H. cordobae than viceversa.
