Andros Island also had the highest Fisher alpha diversity index (14.37 vs. 7.538). The 10 most common species were Berosus stribalus, Paracymus confluens, Enochrus sublongus, Enochrus ochraceus, Neobidessus pullus, Hydrobiomorpha casta, Copelatus chevrolati, Laccophilus proximus, Megadytes fraternus, and Notomicrus sharpi.
