I.—Notice of some Saurian Fossils discovered by J. H. Hood, Esq., at Waipara, Middle Island, New Zealand

  • Owen

In the year 1861 I communicated to the Geological Section of the British Association, which that year met at Manchester, a description of certain fossils discovered by J. H. Cockburn Hood, Esq., in the Canterbury Settlement of the Middle Island of New Zealand; which fossils, kindly submitted to me for description by that gentleman, were afterwards presented by him to the British Museum.

1 In the North Island the regular and highly-inclined beds of marl on the South Head of Waikato and western shore of Kawhia Harbour have been referred by Hochstetter to the “Secondary period,” on the ground of his discoverv therein of Ammonites of the family Canaliculati and Belemnites. I believe the Reptilian remains about to be described afford as sure ground for a like reference of their matrix.
