Abstract

A study of diversity of macro - moth has been carried in Gomantong Virgin Jungle Reserve and Klias Peat Swamp Forest Reserve. Sampling was done by using light trap twice at both sampling areas where each session comprises of 48 hours sampling (12 hours x 4 nig-hts). The study. aims on (1) producing a checklist of macro - moth at Gomantong Virgin Jungle Reserve and Klias Peat Swamp Forest Reserve. (2) to assessed the diversity of macro - moth at both sampling areas. From this study, a total of 244 macro - moth individuals comprises of 120 species were collected at Gomantong Virgin Jungle Reserve, whereas in Klias Peat Swamp Forest Reserve, 105 macro - moth individuals from 54 species were recorded. Results show that the diversity of macro - moth is higher at Gomantong Virgin Jungle Reserve (lI'= 3.705) compared to Klias Peat Swamp Forest Reserve (H'=1.630). There is a possibility that the diversity of macro - moth at Gomantong Virgin Jungle Reserve is higher compared to Klias Peat Swamp Forest Reserve because of the present of higher diversity of host plant for macro - moth at Gomantong Virgin Jungle Reserve. Since this is a preliminary study, we hoped that this effort will be continue by other researcher, in order to maintain the diversity of macro-moth.
