TLF ID R2470
This is a set of seven feathers from the extinct upland moa ('Megalapteryx didinus'). They were collected by R A Falla in 1947, when he was the director of the Dominion Museum (forerunner to the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa) in Wellington. He probably collected them from a cave in Takahe Valley in Fiordland National Park in the south of the South Island. The larger feathers measure approximately 12 cm x 1.5 cm.
