Remains from China point to a third human origin

A παλαιοντολόγων στην Κινεζική Ακαδημία Επιστημών, σε συνεργασία με συναδέλφους από το Πανεπιστήμιο Xi'an Jiaotong, το Πανεπιστήμιο της Υόρκης και το Εθνικό Κέντρο Ερευνών για την Ανθρώπινη Εξέλιξη, βρήκε στοιχεία για έναν άγνωστο άνθρωπο. Στη μελέτη τους, που αναφέρεται στο Journal of Human Evolution, η ομάδα ανέλυσε το απολιθωμένο οστό της γνάθου, το μερικό κρανίο και μερικά οστά των ποδιών ενός ανθρώπινου σκελετού που χρονολογείται πριν από 300.000 χρόνια.

The fossils were discovered at a site in Hualongdong, which is now part of Eastern China. They were then subjected to both morphological and geometric evaluation, with an initial focus on the jawbone, which exhibited unique characteristics.pnas sc

The research team reports that the jawbone's unique features resemble those of both modern humans and Late Pleistocene hominids. But they found it lacked a chin, suggesting it was more closely related to older species. They also discovered other features similar to those of Middle Pleistocene humans, which suggest that this particular individual was more like a species of Homo erectus.

With all this they conclude that it is a hybrid of modern man and an ancient humanoid.

The researchers report that its combination of features has never been seen before in hominids in East Asia, suggesting that the features present in modern humans began to appear 300.000 years ago.

Turning their attention to the skull, which a previous team had found to be the first Middle Pleistocene human skull found in southeastern China, the new team found that the bones in its face were more similar to those of modern humans.

Σε μια προσπάθεια να προσδιορίσει ένα είδος, η ομάδα ανέφερε ότι δεν είναι Denisovan ή Homo erectus και ότι είναι πιο κοντά στον Homo sapiens. Αν αυτό είναι αλήθεια, το είδος είναι πολύ πιθανόν να μοιράζεται κάποιες ελικτικές σχέσεις με τα ανθρωποειδή του Μέσου ή του Ύστερου Πλειστόκαινου, με αποτέλεσμα να υπάρχουν κοινά χαρακτηριστικά.
