Siphopteron flavum (Tokioka & Baba, 1964)

I saw about four of these around Oahu, and a few more within the lagoon of Kure Atoll at the northwestern end of the Hawaiian chain. They were mostly crawling on rubble or sand during the day. The pair in the first three shots were found at Pupukea, Oahu, at a depth of about 10m. The last photo is one of the Kure specimens.
