Nur Husna Razimi (2018) The study of moth diversity (order: Lepidoptera) using the existing light (fluorescent lamp) at University Malaysia Kelantan, Jeli Campus. Final Year Project thesis, Universiti Malaysia Kelantan. (Submitted)


The moth diversity was studied at three main sites in University Malaysia Kelantan, Jeli Campus (UMKKJ) using the existing light that is fluorescent lamp. The study was carried out in UMKKJ from July to August 2017 started from 2030 to 0330 hours using aerial net at Site A (Block A & B student dormitory), Site B (Student Activity Building (B.A.P) & Faculty building) and Site C (Lecturer’s Cabin & Security Office). A total of 58 species from 12 families with 92 individuals were recorded. The overall species diversity index for the moths was high at Site A with the value 3.628. The most dominant species at three sampling sites is Daphnusa ocellaris with 5 individuals from family Sphingidae. Nyctemera baulus (Family: Arctiidae) and Daphnusa ocellaris (Family: Sphingidae) are the most abundant species of moth for Site A. Meanwhile, for Site B and Site C, the abundance species were same with one individual per one species. The species that available at three sampling sites was Cyana perornata. Family Noctuidae was the most abundant family with 34 individuals at Site A, Site B and Site C. For further research in UMKKJ regarding moth diversity, longer duration can be applied in order to gain more variety of species with variation of colour, pattern and rare species that are found in the study area.
