The diet of the White-bibbed Manakin in Costa Rica is composed mainly of small fruits with less but frequent proportions of insects and spiders (Rosselli 1994). Fifty-seven species of plant were found in the fecal samples, most of them belonging to the Melastomataceae and Rubiaceae (Rosselli 1994). The plant species most frequently consumed were Casearia arborea, Conostegia tooperi, Henriettella tuberculosa, Miconia aff. smaragdina, Oreopanax sp. and Ossaea spp. (Rosselli 1994).
