Preliminary study on hymenopteran distribution and abundance from island ecosystem of Tuba Island Forest Reserve, Langkawi
The study was performed to determine the diversity and distribution of Hymenoptera across the environmental gradient ranging from fringe forest, mid forest to inner forest. The study was conducted in
Effects of Malaise trap spacing on species richness and composition of terrestrial arthropod bulk samples
TLDR
The influence of spacing between Malaise traps by metabarcoding samples is examined from two field experiments at a site in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada and results show that community similarity of samples decreases over distance between traps.
Efficient assessment of nocturnal flying insect communities by combining automatic light traps and DNA metabarcoding
TLDR
This study provides a methodological metabarcoding pipeline that can be used in standardised surveys of nocturnal flying insects, showing that it can overcome limitations and potential shortcomings of traditional methods based on morphological identification.

Peering into the Darkness: DNA Barcoding Reveals Surprisingly High Diversity of Unknown Species of Diptera (Insecta) in Germany
TLDR
The results suggest a surprisingly high proportion of undetected biodiversity in a supposedly well-investigated country: at least 1800-2200 species await discovery in Germany in these four "dark taxa" families.
The functioning of different beetle (Coleoptera) sampling methods across altitudinal gradients in Peninsular Malaysia
Biodiversity research relies largely on knowledge about species responses to environmental gradients, assessed using some commonly applied sampling method. However, the consistency of detected
A Review of Insect Monitoring Approaches with Special Reference to Radar Techniques
TLDR
This work proves the high potential of radar entomology based on the growing research interest, along with the emerging novel setups, compact devices, and data processing approaches.
Detecting flying insects using car nets and DNA metabarcoding
TLDR
This study demonstrates how nets mounted on rooftops of cars (car nets) and DNA metabarcoding can be applied to sample flying insect richness and diversity across large spatial scales within a limited time period, but may be, like other methods, biased towards certain insect orders.

Species diversity and seasonal abundance in tropical Sphingidae (Lepidoptera)
TLDR
Seasonal abundance and resulting seasonal changes in diversity are discussed in two samples of Sphingidae obtained by different methods of trapping in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Field and Laboratory Studies of Attraction of the Synthetic Sex Pheromone to Male Cabbage Looper Moths
TLDR
Catches of male Trichoplusia ni (Hubner) in traps equipped with black light lamps were increased for 4 weeks by the presence of the synthetic sex pheromone on sand substrate, causing a 50% response by males.

Insect collecting in Suriname with the help of “Malaise” traps
TLDR
Faunistic insect collecting was done in Suriname from September 1963 to December 1964 with two types of “malaise” traps, with but little variation in the proportions of the different orders of insects taken in the nine localities.
A comparison of mosquito collection by Malaise and miniature light traps.
TLDR
The catches of a Malaise trap and a miniature light trap were compared over a 6-week period, and females were much less photopositive when engorged, and their response varied with reproductive condition.
A dry ice-baited trap for the collection and field storage of hematophagous diptera.
TLDR
The described trap was baited with dry ice, the carbon dioxide from which attracted a wide variety of species of Simuliidae, Tabanidae, and Culicidae of the genus Aedes, and was suitable for attempted arbovirus isolations.
