Carinascincus metallicus is not known to occur in Hawaii as far as I can tell, unless you have some sources indicating otherwise I would doubt that this photo is that species. Metallic skink or Garden Skink (Lampropholis delicata) is listed as introduced to the island. See https://www.inaturalist.org/check_lists/... and http://www.reptilesmagazine.com/Field-He...
However, the head seems to elongated in this picture, maybe it doesn't matter? But just a thing I noticed.
You might be right @Saturniidae27, it looks the same to me as well :D
it looks to me like Lampropholis delicata, because in the picture in my link, and in this spotting, have a bronze shade on the top side of the body.Here is the link (: http://reptile-database.reptarium.cz/spe...
I think this might be the Delicate Garden Skink, as the start of the tail-section is similar to this species, however the picture is a bit blurry so I'm not able to make any more detailed indetification. It fits the geographical area and color as well. But I might be wrong. https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/38293-L...
