 Abstract
This study was carried out to investigate the terrestrial diurnal insects in the Donggang river neighborhood. A total of 455 species belonging to 117 families of 16 orders were identified from 3,001 collected terrestrial insects around the Donggang river. Species richness showed as follows; Coleoptera (166 species, 34.48%), Hemiptera (11 species, 24.0%), Lepidoptera (68 species, 14.95%), Diptera (40 species, 8.79%), Hymenoptera (28 species, 6.15%), Orthoptera (18 species, 3.96%), Odonata (7 species, 1.54%), and others (3.74%). The Coleoptera consisted of the most number of individuals (33.2%), followed by 951 Hemiptera (31.7%), 662 Lepidoptera (20.7%), 155 Orthoptera (5.2%), 100 Diptera (3.3%), 87 Hymenoptera (2.9%), 30 Odonata (1.0%) and others (2.0%). Among them, 1 endangered species of Ministry of Environment, 1 Critically Endangered Korean species, 7 Vulnerable Korean species (VU), and also 2 Near Threatened Korean species were surveyed in the Donggang river neighborhood.
