I don't know how much traffic this forum gets, so I'll throw out a response, it might be all you get?
NZ could have exported some at some point in the past. If they didn't, then most of the original stock were probably legally caught and exported by private people early on.
That or the original stock was illegally caught and exported. I hope that's not the case.

Yea, there was some legal exportation of n. grayii and n. elegans elegans in the 80's. I don't know what other naultinus if any were legally exported, but hoplodactylus species were also exported legally but i don't know which one's either. The rest of the species were smuggled out of the country.
