Similar to the nearby elliptical galaxies, the bulge-dominated galaxies in clusters at redshifts ~0.1-0.4 present orbits that are more eccentric than those of disk-dominated galaxies. However, the orbital segregation is less significant than that found for elliptical and spiral galaxies in nearby clusters. The strongest orbital segregation is found when galaxies are separated by colors [red galaxies with colors in the rest frame (U-V)_0_ > 1.4, blue galaxies with (U-V)_0_ < 1.4]. Therefore, the segregation we find seems to modify the star formation activity more efficiently than the internal shape of the galaxies. When we compare the orbits of early-type galaxies at intermediate redshift with those for z = 0, they seem to develop significant changes, becoming much more eccentric. A different behavior is observed in the late-type galaxies, which present no significant evolution in their orbit shapes.
