Abstract: A tropical American scolytid beetle, Hypothenemus obscurus (Fabricius), was found for the first time in the Hawaiian islands during July 1988 when beetles were reared from macadamia nuts from the Kona region of Hawaii Island. Macadamia is a previously unreported host for H. obscurus which is a potentially serious new pest of this crop.
