The picture-winged species Drosophila grimshawi is found on the islands of Hawaii. Unlike most Hawaiian Drosophilain which occur on only one island, this species has a wide geographic range populating a number of islands of the Hawaiian archipelago.

D. grimshawi is one of 12 fruitfly genomes sequenced for a large comparative study by the Drosophila 12 Genomes Consortium. Its genome is 231Mb in size and contains 15,270 protein-coding genes (81.3% of which have homologues in D. melanogaster). Out of the 12 species D. grimshawi has the lowest transposable/ repeat content probably because it is an island endemic so the chances for horizontal transfers are reduced.
