We examined the food composition of the museum specimens of Chalcides ocellatus (Forskal, 1775) collected from Morphou (=Guzelyurt) and Gonyeli (Nicosia District, Northern Cyprus). The stomach contents of 41 (23 males, 11 females, and 7 juveniles) individuals were analyzed, and totally 86 prey items were detected. The species was found to feed mainly on a variety of insects (94.3%) and particularly on coleopterans (62.1%). No statistically significant sex-or age-dependent difference was observed in the feeding regime. In conclusion, the diet of C. ocellatus was based mainly on insects and other arthropods.
