DNA from four CRB adults collected in Hawai were compared to DNA samples from other CRB populations in the Pacific using RFLP analysis. The Guam and Hawaii populations have DNA which breaks into 253 bp fragments. DNA fragments of this size are absent in DNA samples from Diego Garcia, Fiji, Samoa, and PNG. Thus the Hawaii population may have originated from Guam or a currently unknown common source.
