Rubus glaucus Benth.

This species is similar in many respects to R. ellipticus. It was introduced at Volcano and Pa'auilo Agricultural Experimental Stations, where it grew but did not provide commercially exploitable fruit crops. The canes were abandoned but the seeds were dispersed by birds; the plant is now threatening the 'Ola'a Tract of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park.
