Endemic to Hawaii. Previously reported only from Midway and Kure until 2011, when it was reported from Niihau.
Two of five individuals encountered on north side of island in "The Notch" on path to North Landing. A known hotspot for the species on the island.
Massive 36" dbh. This tree has been here as long as the Richmond district, possibly earlier. There's a companion bay tree- curious to know more about the hydrology of this location. The house is also older than surrounding development.
About the size of a turban snail (1" ish across), and relatively thick-shelled, but looked vaguely like a nautilus. Deep umbilicus (testing out my non-existant mollusk vocab!?). Found in the shell line among a serious amount of rotten kelp and other seaweeds on Mavericks Beach.
Crab is pinkish with dark red markings across the surface of the outer shell. About the size of a silver dollar
