We investigated on the terrestrial and aquatic insects from the forest vegetation of Guryongpo, Pohang. The terrestrial insects were composed of 218 species, 79 families and 12 orders. Among them, the dominant species were 75 species in Lepidoptera, 36 species in Coleoptera, 20 species in Nymphalidae and 8 species in Papilionidae. The aquatic insects were composed of 54 species, 25 families and 7 orders. Among them, the dominant species were 15 species in Ephemeroptera and Odonata, 7 species in Libellulidae and 6 species in Heptageniidae. The area of Guryongpo is in need of a preservation and conservation of wild life in forest because this area is faced up to the injury for various industrial developments.
