Sampling comments: "Samplings were performed monthly, during 8 consecutive days between March 2008 and April 2009, totaling 112 sampling days and an effort of 1.664 trap-nights" with sampling "using pitfall traps. In each area were placed two Y-shaped pitfall with 4 buckets each... and two I-shaped of 30 m long with four buckets in each line, as well. All buckets belonging to the same pitfall set were 10 m apart from each other and connected by 50 cm-high plastic drift fence... Baits (banana slices) were used on alternate days"
