Amphibians are claimed to be important components in the diet of many predators (Duellman and Trueb, 1986), although only few attempts have been made to document the diversity of predators of a particular frog species and the effects of predation on its populations (e.g. Schaub and Larsen, 1978). Most data on Neotropical anuran preda- tors are sparse or anecdotal, but a few detailed natural history studies provided impor- tant information on this topic (e.g., Kluge, 1981; Ryan, 1985). The hylid frog Hyla faber, a member of the boans group (nest building gladiator frogs, cf. Kluge, 1979), occurs from northern Argentina to eastern Brazil and breeds in permanent ponds adjacent to streams in the Atlantic Forest (Martins and Haddad, 1988). Kluge (1981) observed adults and larvae of Hyla rosenbergi (another species of the boans group) being preyed
