Abstract:Differences in the diet composition of small (28–42 mm total length, LT) and large (43–75 mm LT) individuals of the cline Clinitrachus argentatus (Clinidae) were evident. Smaller individuals preyed mainly on copepods, whereas larger individuals ate mainly amphipods, isopods, brachyurans and polychaetes.
