Abstract: The seasonal fluctuations of Ctenosciara hawaiiensis (Hardy) populations in two different ecosystems at the same elevation on Mauna Loa on the island of Hawaii are compared and correlated with fluctuations in rainfall, humidity, and temperature. Rainfall appears to be the most important extrinsic factor affecting seasonal changes in this species. There is a marked difference between the two populations which in part could be explained by differences in the ecosystems. Ctenosciara hawaiiensis is closely associated with Acacia koa. The larvae live under the bark of dead branches.
