Abstract: The status of the two species of Banza from the Island of Oahu, A parvula and B. unica is brought into question due to results of rearing out adults from eggs oviposited by a wild caught Banza parvula. Basic techniques for rearing Banza are discussed and some preliminary observations on their reproductive biology are also given. Two matings of Banza parvula were observed in the lab and their behavior are described in a preliminary fashion. The results put the current classification of Banza into question an show the potential of this group for evolutionary studies.
