The species abundance was recorded highest in mixed dipterocarp vegetation with 6.681 mean individuals, followed by in pine tree vegetation with 3.085 mean individuals and 1.723 mean individuals in grasslands. Sixteen (16) species are randomly distributed which includes Asota Hubner, Amerila Walker, Carriola ecnomoda Swinhoe, Creatonotos gangis Linneaus, Nyctemera baulus Boisduval, Oenistis altica Linnaeus, Gastrina cristaria Guenée, Pingasa chlora Stoll, Taxeotis sp. 1 Guest, Hypomecis Hubner, Pingasa ruginaria Guenée, Pinara sp. 1 Walker, Persectania dyscrita Common, Noctuidae sp. 1 Latrielle, Dudusa Walker and Ourapteryx Leach.
