Nawaz Haider Bashir, Lu Haixia, Du Shijie, Yue Dan, Ma Li and Li Qiang

Taxonomy is considered basic for research in the field of biology. It has correlation with all important fields of study like ecology, medicine, biodiversity, agriculture etc. By collecting the data regarding new species recorded from 2000 to 2017, the work of Pakistani taxonomists is negligible against taxonomy of insects as they covered only some parts of these orders like Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, Orthoptera, Odonata, Diptera, Neuroptera and Phthiraptera. Topography and climatic conditions of this country is favorable for insect biodiversity but there are some challenges need to overcome by financial support, taxonomy as a compulsory subject for zoology students, conduction of short national and international training programs, availability of related literature, enough journals to publish work and establishments of identification centers.
