Coordinator notes: After much research, this species most likely could be Mestolobes olali (recently described in 2017 and endemic to the Big Island only), however it appears it can only be definitively ID'd by dissection based on recent literature. Therefore, I'll ID it as "Mestolobes species" for now until further information becomes available. -jmgesell
