Abstract

A preliminary checklist was constructed to analyse the richness of butterfly fauna in the Kurukani Forest Village of Sivasagar district, Assam, from February 2020 to August 2021. During the study, a total of 76 species of butterflies belonging to six different families were recorded. The family Nymphalidae was found to be the most dominant with 33 species, followed by Hesperiidae, Lycaenidae, Papilionidae, and Pieridae. The family Riodinidae, on the other hand, had only one species. Except for Euploea mulciber (Cramer, 1777), which is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Redlist, the majority of the recorded species have not been assessed by IUCN. The present study is the first of its kind in the study area, providing baseline data on the butterfly diversity in Assam’s Kurukani Forest Village.
