Confirmed new species.

Not positive, but I think this could be a strange looking Sedum Rubrotinctum.

Haha, it is quite an interesting experience to eat them. The flavor is surprisingly sweet/sour, like a tart green apple with a little stinging sensation on the tongue.

Good suggestion Jellis, I think you could be correct. The size, toe shape, color and pattern all seem to fit. S Frazier, thoughts?

Thanks for the clarification, I knew about their decorative purpose but I thought they also served as the nest. It makes sense, eggs would be easily eaten by snakes/monitors on the ground here!

What an amazing structure, you should add this to the animal architecture mission! http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8082...

Yes, me as well. It amazing the damage that can occur with the rapid introduction of alien species, especially in an island environment. Good work with the mission! I don't know the species, identification of snails is tough, even more so without the shell present.

Thanks for the tip martinl, I'm quite convinced now that they are not beetles but instead the nymph stage of a stink bug in the family Scutelleridae.

Hawaii once had one of the richest snail diversities on the planet but has lost over 900 of its native species to extinction from predation by introduced animals and the clearing of brush lands.

Yes, I think you're right on the ID. Thanks.
