Resumen

Dos nuevos casos de forrajeo cooperativo por parte de Paratemnoides nidificator (Balzan, 1888) en hormigas Atta cephalotes (Linnaeus, 1758) y Dolichoderus bispinosus (Oliver, 1792) son documentados. Estos eventos se observaron en la localidad de Santa Inés, municipio de San Marcos, departamento de Sucre, Caribe Colombiano. Esto representa el primer registro de este comportamiento de búsqueda de alimento en estas especies de hormigas por esta especie social de pseudoescorpiones. Se incrementa el número de especies conocidas como presas y que forman parte de la dieta de este pseudoescorpión.
