Abstract

A study on the diversity of cicada was conducted in Hutan Lipur Bukit Bakar, Machang, Kelantan. The objectives were to determine the species richness and also the species abundance of cicadas in Hutan Lipur Bukit Bakar. Sampling was conducted from July 8, 2018 until August 8, 2018, with 26 sampling days. A total of 27 individuals from one family, five genera and seven species were recorded by using light traps and manual collection through nature trail with three sampling points. Genus Dundubia (1 species), Pomponia (1 species), Orientopsaltria (1 species), Chremistica (2 species) and Abroma (2 species) were identified in this research. The most dominant genera that been recorded are Chremistica and Abroma. There were three diversity indices that applied for the data analysis and values were obtained; Shannon-Wiener Diversity Index, H’= 1.49 with an H’ max= 1.95, Margalef Diversity Index, DMg= 1.82 and Pielou’s Evenness Index, J= 0.77. The values of these diversity indices show that Hutan Lipur Bukit Bakar, Machang, Kelantan has a low diversity of cicadas species. These were because of the several factors that can affect the determination of cicadas’ diversity such as conversion of forest area into a recreational area, environmental issues and some of the disturbances by the visitors in the sampling area. This was the first cicadas’ research carried out in the study area and contributes to a new record of cicadas.
