Abstract : Co-related with the seasonal fluctuations and sliding threshold of food resources, seasonal variation in time & space (temporal and spatial) in the population of coccimellids commonly called lady bird beetles have been significantly recorded in different grassland habitats of Gaya city area within the radius of 10kms. The paper discusses the rationale of use of statistical information indices that diversity of species particularly of lady bird beetles in grassland habitatas covering horticultural gardens of Gaya can be weighed in a way that is similar to the information contained in a genetic code which can also be probed through transcription. The SW-diversity value of five species sampled from Zone-IV (West-North of Gaya) during July 2012 to June 2013 has been quantified alongwith the dominance to the tune of 0.71137 & 4.9326 respectively indicating threatened condition of some species like Anisolemnia dilatata (Fab.) and Axinoscymnus puttarudriahi (Kapur & Munshi).
