Study of insect species composition in UNIMAS was limited, hence this study was conducted. This study was conducted at peat swamp forest of Real Living Lab and lowland forest of Zoological Forest at UNIMAS. A total of 24 sampling day was used, which start from 23rd February until 3rd April 2022. Total of 2372 individuals, that included 10 orders, 74 families and 433 species were captured by using PLT. 1484 individuals were captured from peat swamp forest, with 10 orders, 58 families and 293 species. While 888 individuals were captured form lowland forest, with nine orders 55 families and 229 species. The most abundant order at peat swamp forest was Hymenoptera, while the most abundant order at lowland forest was Lepidoptera. Vespidae was the most abundant family overall and at peat swamp forest, Erebidae was the most abundant family at lowland forest. Among the species captured, Provespa anomala was the most abundant insect species. While Apionidae, Callirhipidae, Lampyridae, Passalidae, Passandridae, Rhipicendridae, Scolytidae, Blaberidae, Asilidae, Calliphoridae, Sarcophagidae, Syrphidae, Fulgoridae, Pentatomidae, Scutelleridae, Apidae, Evaniidae, Apidae, Crambidae, Cossidae, Scelionidae, Drepanidae, Coenagrionidae, Eupterotidae, Libellulidae, Coenagrionidae, Gryllotalpidae Pyrgomorphidae and Lonchodidae were the least abundant families in this study. Further study with longer duration and larger area was recommended to cover and investigate the night flying insect in UNIMAS area
