The broadleaf trees are called  Mountain Mahogany   (Cercocarpus ledifolius var. intermontanus)  and its flowers are shown (right side) being pollinated by metallic green  Sweat-bees   (Agaostemon tetanus).   A    Black-chinned hummingbird   (Archilochus alejandri)  hovers (at left) near the bright red flowers of a  Penstemon eatonii.  The yellow flowers at the lower right are called  Cleomella palmeriana .
 This is a depiction of the   Pu’u kukui    montane      habitat group on the island of Maui. The bog site is home to numerous threatened endemic species of Hawaiian plants and animals.

A number of   Lobellia   species are also found there.
