Moreover, as these species are euryphagous, feeding on a variety of hosts, not only on soft bodied insects but also on plants pollens when prey is scarce, therefore, it ultimately gives a positive effect on their population increase by retarded cannibalism (Hodek and Michaud, 2008).
It is generally thought plethodontid salamanders are opportunist euryphagous predators and prey acquisition is typically only related to prey availability and microhabitat selection (Jaeger.
Members of Araneae are the dominant generalist predators with euryphagous feeding habits in most of the agro-ecosystems which play a basic role in containing phytophagous insect pest populations (Symondson et al.
Unlike many species in the family Coccinellidae, the lady beetle Coleomegilla maculata (DeGeer) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) is a generalist predator, described as "perhaps the most euryphagous coccinellid known" (Hodek 1973).
