In the same issue, there's another paper

Michael Bunce, Trevor H. Worthy, Tom Ford, Will Hoppitt, Eske Willerslev,
Alexei Drummond & Alan Cooper: Extreme reversed sexual size dimorphism in
the extinct New Zealand moa *Dinornis*, 172 -- 175

which reaches the very same conclusions using mitochondrial DNA. It also
provides the names: the North Island species is *D. novaezelandiae* Owen,
1843, the South Island one is *D. robustus* Owen, 1846.
