Haha (Cyanea kolekoleensis)
Where Listed: WHEREVER FOUND
Cyanea kolekoleensis (haha), a shrub in the bellflower family (Campanulaceae), occurs in wet Metrosideros polymorpha forest in the lowland wet ecosystem at elevations of 2,125 to 2,500 ft (650 to 765 m) (Lammers 1992, p. 130; HBMP 2007; TNCH 2007). First discovered in 1987 in the Wahiawa drainage, the last known C. kolekoleensis was observed in 1992. Seeds were in storage and propagation for this species was attempted, but none survived (M. Clark, NTBG, in litt. 2007; Lyon Arboretum 2007). However, there are many areas within the ecosystem type in the Wahiawa drainage that have not been surveyed for this species, from Mt. Kahili to Kapalaoa and the Hanapepe Valley rim, and species experts are confident that additional individuals will be found (S. Perlman, in litt. 2007).
