Rubus macraei, commonly known as ʻĀkalakala, is a species of Rubus that is endemic to Hawaii. Although superficially similar to the other Hawaiian species, Rubus hawaiensis, the two are believed to be derived from separate colonizations of Hawaii. R. macraei usually has a creeping rather than erect or sprawling habit. It inhabits wet forests, bogs, and subalpine shrublands at elevations of 1,610–2,080 m (5,280–6,820 ft) on the Big Island and East Maui.
