Abstract: The highly distinctive and diverse native Hawaiian carabid beetle
fauna includes a suite of species not recently observed in nature. These are
predominantly historical residents of the mesic Acacia koa forest formation. We
report rediscovery of one of these species, Blackburnia anomala (Blackburn), in
the shrubland formation near Paliku Cabin, and in koa forest of Kaupa Gap.
Prior records of B. anomala are limited to the leeward edges of historical koa
forest near Olinda, on the northwestern slope of Haleakala. Rediscovery on the
far southeastern side of Haleakala Crater in similar, though conserved, habitats
suggests that other long-missing koa associates may persist in similar situations
on Haleakala.
