Is there any articles written by Joan Wiffen or Ralph Molnar about New 
Zealand dinosaur finds?

New Zealand dinosaur list:  2 theropods (represented by caudal vertebra 
                                         and toe bones)
                            dryosaurid (or Hypsilophodontid) (represented 
                                         by a partial illium)
                            ?armored dinosaur (not confirmed)
please add to the list.
