Suresh Kumar Shah and Bulganin Mitra

City forests are maintained for greening the city and also for recreational and research purposes. A complete floral and faunal information is required to preserve the biodiversity of a city forest. In this respect, a preliminary study of insect diversity of the proposed city forest area in Andaman and Nicobar Islands was carried out during September 2011. A total of 53 species of insects belonging to six orders and twenty families were recorded. Four endemic species were recorded during the study period namely Euploea andamanensis Cramer, Elymnias cottonis cottonis Hewitson, Parthenos sylvia roepstorfii (Moore) and Hypsa andamana Moore.
