This research was conducted to evaluate the association between aquatic insect with water parameter as pH, turbidity, dissolved oxygen and total suspended solids in Telipok River, Sabah. Sampling were done in September 2007 with 9 main station (6 sub sampling site) using kicking and dipping method to collect the aquatic insect which later on were identify with taxonomy keys. Loggerc (@)Pro meter was used to determine the water parameter value and it shows that station 1 and 2 were in Class IIA and station 3 to 9 were in Class 111, based on INTERIM, Malaysia. Aquatic insects in order Ephemeroptera, Pleocoptera and Tricoptera (EPT) were found abundant in station I and 2, Odonata were scattered evenly in all station and Diptera were found mainly in station 3 to 9. Pearson correlation shows that EPT abundance has a negative correlation with turbidity and total suspended solids but a positive correlation was observed between the EPT with dissolved oxygen. However, Odonata and Diptera shows a diverse results suggesting that the EPT existence are suitable to indicate 0 any water quality changes especially on the dissolved oxygen., total suspend solid and turbidity in a river such as Telipok River better than Odonata and Diptera.
