Interpretive Summary: Three new records of lady beetles are recorded within the state of Hawai‘i, USA. The first species, Diomus roseicollis, is newly recorded from the state based on four specimens collected on the island of O‘ahu. The second and species, Cycloneda sanguinea sanguinea and Brumoides suturalis, were both already established in the state and are now newly recorded from the island of Hawai‘i. Additional sampling is recommended to determine the distribution of D. roseicollis within the island of O‘ahu. Further surveys are warranted to determine particular habitats and prey for D. roseicollis, C. sanguinea sanguinea, and B. suturalis in Hawai‘i, as well as their impact on the insect fauna there.

Technical Abstract: Three new records of Coccinellidae are recorded within the state of Hawai‘i, USA. Diomus roseicollis (Mulsant, 1853) is newly recorded from the state based on four specimens collected on the island of O‘ahu. Cycloneda sanguinea sanguinea (Linnaeus, 1763) and Brumoides suturalis (Fabricius), both already established in the state, are newly recorded from the island of Hawai‘i. Additional sampling is recommended to determine the distribution of D. roseicollis within the island of O‘ahu. Further surveys are warranted to determine particular habitats and prey for D. roseicollis, C. sanguinea sanguinea, and B. suturalis in Hawai‘i, as well as their impact on the insect fauna there.
