Keywords:Insecta, Lepidoptera, checklist, Shiwaliks, Majathal, India
The current study results from a two-month faunal assessment survey of the Majathal Wildlife Sanctuary, Himachal Pradesh. In total, 54 species from six Lepidoptera families were documented. Herein we present a preliminary checklist procured from the data collected during the short duration of two months. This checklist establishes a baseline for the Rhopalocera diversity of Majathal Wildlife Sanctuary.
