Abstract

A study on beetles of Pulau Pangkor was conducted from 16-18 July 2017 during the Pangkor Scientific Expedition 2017. Beetles were sampled using malaise traps and active collection by sweeping nets. A total of three malaise trap was installed, and sweeping nets were conducted by active sampling. A total of 105 specimens of beetles from 18 families was recorded during the study. The most abundant and diverse beetles collected were the leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae) while the least abundant families sampled were from Lycidae, Attelabidae, Buprestidae, Lampyridae, Cleridae, Curculionidae and Brentidae where only one individual represented each of these families. The most abundant species, Hoplasoma unicolor (Galerucinae) was recorded. This study also recorded the presence of fireflies, Lampyridae from Pulau Pangkor, but unfortunately only one individual was sampled. This study manages to record Cetoniidae, Curculionidae, Lycidae, Attelabidae, Buprestidae, Lampyridae, Endomychidae, Brentidae and Anthribidae which was not in the earlier checklist. This study managed to prepare an updated checklist of beetles of Pulau Pangkor. A more comprehensive study with regards to sampling effort and period can be done to look further for the diversity and abundance of beetles in Pulau Pangkor.
