Stratigraphic range: Campanian
The Tahora Formation is a Late Cretaceous geologic formation. Indeterminate Dinosaur remains have been recovered from the formation, including indeterminate Joan Wiffen's Theropod, Titanosaur, Nodosaurid, and Hypsilophodont Dinosaurs of New Zealand remains. Other fossils found in the Tahora Formation are of the 40 foot long mosasaur Moanasaurus, also known as Mosasaurus flemingi and Rikkisaurus. The humerus of a pterosaur very similar to the Australian Mythunga has also been found. All of the finds at the Tahora Formation are from the Cretaceous period, and have all been found by amateur palaeontologist Joan Wiffen and her fossil-hunting team.
