Resumen

GIBRAN, F. Z.. The sea basses Diplectrum formosum and D. radiale (Serranidae) as followers of the sea star Luidia senegalensis (Asteroidea) in Southeastern Brazil. Braz. J. Biol. [online]. 2002, vol.62, n.4a, pp.591-594. ISSN 1519-6984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1519-69842002000400005.

This paper reports on Luidia senegalensis being followed by Diplectrum formosum and D. radiale in shallow soft bottoms of southeastern Brazilian coast, and comments on this association between bottom-dwelling organisms and serranids. Following is likely due to the serranid's inquisitive behaviour, and both juvenile and adult sea basses acted as followers, feeding on disturbed or exposed prey due to sea star activities.

Palabras clave : feeding association; following behaviour; sand perch; aquavina; nine-armed sea star.
