CommentsSpecimens (presumably aquarium releases) were collected in freshwater streams on Oahu during 1984-1987, 1989, 1990 and 1991 but specimens were not retained for identification. It is not known if this species (or these species, if more than one is involved) became established but they have not been found in recent collection efforts.
