ABSTRACT
Abacetus chalcopterus Reiche, Abacetus sp., Dioryche torta Mcleay and Orthogonius sp. Four species were unidentified even to genus level and coded as Cara E, Cara F, Cara G and Cara H are possibly new species which will be described later in another report. This study shows that there is low abundance (Margalef index, 1.85) and low diversity (Shannon weaver index, 1.38) of ground beetles at Lanjak Entimau, Sarawak indicating that the area has been disturbed by activities of local ethnic people that depended on the forest for their subsistence. This study also shows that light traps assembled the most abundant and specious Carabid beetles (Margalef index: 2.056; Shannon Weaver index, 1.475).]]>
