Comparative view of skeletons, the largest a variety of the extinct flightless bird the Moa, here styled Dinornis maximus (Owen) according to a classification by Julius von Haast. It is possibly the South Island Giant Moa Dinornis robustus. Shown with the skeleton of a member of the Moriori people of the Chatham Islands in the Pacific Ocean, intended to illustrate the relative heights of human Moa hunters and birds. Plate 8 from Geology of the provinces of Canterbury and Westland, New Zealand by Julius von Haast (Christchurch, 1879). The plate is inscribed: 'SKELETON OF DINORNIS MAXIMUS (OWEN) with that of a MORIORI (CHATHAM ISLANDS,) FOR COMPARISON. Lyttelton Times lith.' Sir [Johann Franz] Julius von Haast] (1822-1887) German geologist active in New Zealand was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1867.
