Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: New records of lady beetles (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) are recorded within the state of Hawai‘i, USA. Diomus roseicollis is newly recorded from the state based on specimens collected on the islands of O‘ahu and Hawai‘i. Cycloneda sanguinea sanguinea and Brumoides suturalis, 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 on the islands of O‘ahu Hawai‘i. 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.
