|Abstract:||A survey for scolytine bark and ambrosia beetles undertaken on the entomologically understudied Hawaiian island of Lanai revealed for the first time the presence there of the coffee berry borer, Hypothenemus hampei (Ferrari, 1867), a serious exotic pest of cultivated coffee. Lanai is chronologically the fourth Hawaiian island on which H. hampei has been found, following its initial detection on the island of Hawaii, followed by Oahu then Maui. We present the new records from Lanai in detail, together with a map of collecting sites and photographs of an adult specimen, demonstrating that the beetle is now widespread on Lanai, occurring at high and low elevations, and in both mesic and xeric environments.|
