Abstract

A vertebra from the Mata Series (Upper Cretaceous) of North Island, New Zealand, is identified as a theropod dinosaur caudal. The amphiplatyan centrum with elevated transverse process and other features exclude identification as marine reptile. Terrestrial tetrapods known or inferred to have lived in New Zealand during the Upper Cretaceous were forms probably widespread throughout Gondwana before New Zealand's isolation. A brief survey of other known Upper Cretaceous insular dinosaur faunas indicates that these faunas comprised some dwarf and relict forms.
