Abstract: A preliminary study of moth’s fauna was carried out during May-October, 2011 in the campus of Atomic Energy Research Establishment (AERE), Savar, Dhaka. Moths were collected by using a light trap for one hour following the sunset. A total of 153 moth species belonging to 113 genera, 25 sub-families under 14 families were recorded. The recorded moth families were Noctuidae, Pyralidae, Arctiidae, Geometridae, Sphingidae, Lymantriidae, Ctenuchidae, Lymacodidae, Drepanidae, Psychidae, Nolidae, Notodontidae, Lasiocampidae and Hypsidae. The most dominant moth families in the AERE campus were Pyralidae, Noctuidae and Arctiidae their relative abundance was 45.86, 31.09 and 13.90, respectively. Whereas, Psychidae, Nolidae and Lasiocampidae were found to be minor family and relative abundance to those families was <0.07.
