Abstract

The discovery of late Holocene sea lion (Phocarctos hookeri) bones, including a near complete skeleton (cranium included) of a young pup, is reported from dunes of Delaware Bay near Nelson, in the South Island of New Zealand. These remains indicate former breeding of this species on the New Zealnad mainland. The post-canine tooth morphology is discussed. -Author
