ABSTRACT
The prey preference of Heteropoda garciai, Olios mahabangkawitus, Ctenus floweri, and Pardosa apostoli was examined on Spodoptera litura and Plutella xylostella in laboratory. These spiders showed a clear preference for P. xylostella compare to S. litura. However, there was no significant difference observed between the second and third instars larvae of P. xylostella. Similarly, the size of prey was not an important factor in the prey selection by H. garciai, O. mahabangkawitus in this study. P. apostoli showed higher preference on smaller sized S. litura larvae.
