     Abstract The objective of this study was to study diversity of adult whirligig beetles in northern Thailand. The diversity of whirligig beetles from 25 sites in Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lampang, Mae Hong Son, Nan, Phayao, Phrae and Uttaradit Provinces of northern Thailand were investigated during the year 2017 to 2018. Samples were collected by using a D-frame dip net with 450 µm mesh size from streams, creeks, lakes and rivers. As a result, a total of 1,879 individuals of whirligig beetles belonging to four genera were classified: Patrus (99.67%), Orectochilus (4.63%), Porrorhynchus (1.38%) and Gyrinus (0.32%). Patrus was the most abundant and the highest diversity (13 morphospecies) whirligig beetles found in this study. The identification of whirligig beetles to the species level is ongoing.
