However, there is concern that traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) concerning wild-collected insects is in danger of being lost. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is a country that encompasses many diverse cultures, many of which are known to include insects in their dietary repertoire, yet data on TEK related to edible insects across this region is scarce. This study records local knowledge and, where possible, scientific identification of the insects consumed by human communities in the area adjacent to LuiKotale, Salonga National Park. Information was gathered using interviews and first-hand observations. A total of 31 edible insects are identified by their local names, and of these 10 are identified to species level. Collection methods are recorded for seven commonly consumed species. This article contributes to the scarce body of research detailing entomophagy in the DRC.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-02-14T10:10:13Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Payne, Charlotte L.
