small scale study assessing the species composition of the bombycoid moths of Kubah National Park, Sarawak was conducted in February 2015. Four Modified Pennsylvanian Light traps set for 132 hours resulted in total of 42 bombycoid moths specimens represented by 18 species from five families. The species composition was examined and compared to the currently known species found in Kubah National Park and this was compared to the number of species known from Borneo. The Saturniidae was found to be highest percentage of species with a total of 27.3 % (6/22) representative in relation for the moths of Borneo while the Sphingidae was the most speciose with 25.5% (24/94). Species abundance, as well as their known ecological distribution are also reported. Overall, very few specimens and species were collected each night. Sampling could have been positively affected by the continuous heavy rain throughout the sampling nights.
