We found 165 species, 60 families, and 9 orders of terrestrial insects in the forests of Yeongdeok- eup area from Mundeungsan through Seok-ri. Note that there was a construction of quarries in the area, and thus we were likely to collect more species otherwise. We examined the effect of sea wind on the species collected from four different areas. The four areas are divided into two areas, the west side and the east side of the mountain, such that the west side represents the inlands whereas the east side represents the sea wind. As a result, the species that had much larger population in the inlands side include Calliptamus abbreviatus, Oncocera semirubella, and Ischnura elegans. On the contrary, the species that had much larger population in the seashores side include Homalogonia obtusa and Minois dryas. A more detailed research will be necessary on this.
