After an initial microscope screening, it appears that she may have just brought to our attention a new pest in Hawaii. Snapped a picture and sent it to our CTAHR and HDOA entomologist friends for confirmation. Funny, as I just read about this new pest on HDOA Entomologist, Darcy Oishi's facebook page a few days ago and thought...'wow... those symptoms are strange.'
SAME DAY CONFIRMATION: by CTAHR and HDOA entomologist. Dick Tsuda and Darcy Oishii
