This contribution considers the fossil content of the three Eastern Province ‘central’ terranes discussed within this Memoir, namely the Brook Street Terrane, the Dun Mountain–Maitai Terrane and the Murihiku Terrane, and reviews the evidence and/or arguments for the current interpretation of their age ranges as determined from fossils. It also briefly considers the Permian–Triassic record of the Western Province. There has been limited new palaeontological discovery in the past few decades but there has been significant new taxonomic and biostratigraphic analysis of New Zealand Permian faunas in light of new research in eastern Australia. This enables refinement of age correlations and greater confidence in the age significance of the New Zealand Permian record.
