Isolated cranial and postcranial elements represent a new genus and species of endemic crocodilian, Volia athollandersoni, from presumed Pleistocene cave deposits of Fiji. Preliminary phylogenetic assessment indicates that it is a mekosuchine crocodylid. This material sheds further light on the Pleistocene tetrapod fauna of the southwestern Pacific islands.
