We investigated the biodiversity in Baengnyeongdo Island and also tried to clarify the relationship between surrounding environment and ecosystem of other Islands, in order to, eventually, contribute to biodiversity conservation as well as to management of West-coastal islands in Incheon, Korea. Insect was collected from April to October, 2011. As a result of all the collections were examined, 388 species of 75 family under 9 order were identified. Therefore, the species composition of insect over each result from Baengnyeongdo was a total of 9 orders, 124 families, 642 species including 7 species of IUCN Red list, 3 Endemic species, 23 Management of exportable species, 4 species of Korean Red list, 1 species of Climate-sensitive Indicator species and 70 Designated species; 286 species of Lepidoptera (44.55%) which is the highest, 153 species of Coleoptera (23.83%), 66 species of Hemiptera (10.28%) and 44 species of Hymenoptera (6.85%).
