The internal oral morphology of the larvae of four species of sympatric anuran amphibians from a locality in south India was examined by scanning electron microscopy. A close fit between diet and oral structures was found. The mouthparts are considerated as adaptive for a variety of feeding modes, including filter-feeding, algal-scraping and macrophyte-snipping.
