I want to be helpful, but this is my first time, so please accept my apologies for mistakes. I saw these beetles on 19 December 2014 at about 16:00 in front of the KHON Channel 2 news entrance on 88 Piikoi St, Honolulu.

Welcome to Project Noah. Hope you enjoy it. Tihs spotting is good but it needs to focus on a single species. So if this is about the beetles then the category should be 'Arthropods' and the common name should be something like 'Coconut beetles' at this stage until we know more. They look like some sort of scarab type maybe. In you notes there is no need to put the time/date or major location as they are on the record already but you might put something particular like 'these were found on a coconut palm' or 'eating a broken coconut' ... Good job! Looking forward to more wildlife from Hawaii. ( last time I was there I was amazed to find they have wild kangaroos - crazy !! )
