Living in Hawaii.
This bug is seen on our Gliricidia since 15 Oct 2015.
Your name is remarkably similar to the name of your Longhorned Borer Beetles, commonly called the Kiawe Borer. It is a non-native species that feeds on introduced, cultivated mesquite plant. Since Gliricidia and Mesquite are in the same family, perhaps the Kiawe Borer has adapted to boring in the wood of the former.
