Cruciferous vegetables，including Chinese cabbage，kale，turnip，etc．are major vegetables planted in areas，with high altitude of Hubei Province．Recently，pests have caused serious damages heavily influenced the yield and quality of cruciferous vegetable．This paper carried out investigation from 2011-2015 on the pest species composition and distribution rule of highland cruciferous vegetables，by field survey combined with asking farmers method at experiment sites in Huoshaoping town and Ziqiu town，Changyang County，Hubei province with altitude of 400 m，800 m，1 200 m，1 600 m and 1 800 m，respectly．The results showed that pests of highland cruciferous vegetable consisted of 52 species of insect pests and 2 species of molluscs
and they belonged to 7 orders and 28 families．Among them 16 species were severe pests．Their occurance mainly concentrated from June to etember．We found that the pest species numbers decreased with altitude rising and presented evident vertical distribution．Locusts were rarely discovered in the area above 1 200 m altitude．Lepidoptera pests could cause serious damage in the area between 400-1 800 m altitude．Coleoptera and Heteroptera pests were mainly distributed in the area between 400-1 200 m altitude．
