Samples were collected on the understory and the canopy level (6 traps of each) of the forest by using cylindrical gauze with rotten pineapples. A total of 158 individuals of fruit feeding butterflies were collected which comprised 25 species belonging to three families and 16 genera. The highest number of species was found in Satyridae (11 species), followed by Nymphalidae (10 species) meanwhile Amathusidae was the lowest (four species).
