Prey capture success of both species did not vary among the different ant prey species. Prey capture success of M. hyalinus varied little between soils, but that of C. lineosa was markedly reduced when put in the sand. Notably, the prey capture success of the habitat generalist M. hyalinus was higher than that of the habitat specialist C. lineosa in both soil types.
