Abstract– 95 species of aquatic insects belonging to order Coleoptera have been recorded from a weed infested man made wetland water bodies in different parts of Jharkhand. Coleoptera was numerically the most abundant group comprising 39% of the total aquatic insect followed by Hemiptera (36%) and Odonata 25%. And the variation may be due to unfavourable water condition for the survival of the beetles due to pollution.
