|Abstract:||Sybra alternans Wiedemann (Cerambycidae: Coleoptera) was found in a Hawaii banana farm feeding on the dried blossom end of ‘Williams’ banana fruits. The infestation was surveyed and evaluated. This beetle was first reported in the Hawaiian Islands in 1917. The host range of S. alternans has been described by many authors, however, this is the first report of this beetle infesting banana. The potential significance of this finding is discussed, and a broader and periodical inspection for this beetle on banana farms is recommended.|
