ABSTRACT

This study primarily focused on the inventory of mangrove associated insects in Zamboanga City, Western Mindanao. It sought to identify and classify insects that are found in Mangrove areas. Point Count Method was used in this study to count the number of mangrove associated insects. More so, Net Collection Method was also used to collect insects for photograph, which will be used for clasification. There were 16 species identified and a total of 225 individuals. These were Ceraeochrysa sp., Allograpta sp., Leucopodella sp., Neomyctarubida, Syrphus tricolor, Thyreus, Xylocopaviolacea, Oecophyllasmaragdina Fabricius, Monomorium minimum, Haematobiairritans, Musca domestica, Pornothemisstarrei Lieftinck, Chorthippus brunneus, Lycosidae, Diaeadorsata and Zygiella x-notata. Among the three stations, station has the highest species richness with a Margalef’s Index value of 2.49. More so, station 1 has the highest species evenness with a Pielou’s Index value of 0.50. Station 3 has the lowest diversity with a Shannon’s Diversity Index value of 0.74 and Simpson’s Index value of 0.30. The three stations obtained a similarity index value of 0.35.
