Abstract:
We present the preliminary studies on Moth diversity of Ranjit Sagar Conservation Reserve, Punjab. The survey was conducted in the monsoon months of August 2021. A total of 59 species of moths were recorded from Ranjit Sagar Conservation Reserve, Punjab. The present paper deals with the preliminary data collected during the one survey tours conducted in this conservation reserve. During the study period 57 species, 51 genera, 20 subfamilies and 09 families moths were recorded from Ranjit Sagar Conservation Reserve. These include Cossidae, Crambidae, Erebidae, Drepanidae, Eupterotidae, Geometridae, Noctuidae, Nolidae and Notodontidae. The family Erebidae is found to be dominating with 6 subfamilies 16 genera and 19 species followed by Geometridae, Crambidae and Noctuidae.
