Abstract: Insects are the most diverse group of organisms compared to other groups of organisms. To date, approximately 950,000 insect species have been identified around the world, or about 59.5% of the total described organisms. In Indonesia, to be precise, Jingah HabangIlir village is a jasmine-producing village in the KarangIntan district, Banjar Regency. The purpose of this study was to determine the status of diversity, species richness, and insect dominance on jasmine flowers in Jingah HabangIlir village, KarangIntan district, and Banjar Regency. This research was carried out on a jasmine plantation area with the methods of installing insect traps, namely yellow sticky traps, light traps, and pitfall traps, and direct exploration by taking and collecting the types of insects present on the plant parts by hand, namely hand sorting. The results showed that the insects caught on jasmine plants consisted of 9 orders and 23 families with a total insect population of 197 individuals, with the results of the analysis of the insect diversity index value of 2793, the analysis of the insect species richness index value of 4.164, and the analysis of the dominance index value of 0.073. The species diversity index (H') is in the medium category in stable environmental conditions, the insect dominance index (D) is low, which indicates that no insects dominated the jasmine plantation area, and the species richness index (R) is high.
