[Relayé] Fossil pushes back human origins 400,000 years | Science/AAAS | News

The new Ledi-Geraru discovery fits best in Homo, says ASU paleoanthropologist William Kimbel. Its molars are slimmer than those of Australopithecus, the third molar is smaller, and the jawbone is shaped differently. The ASU team hasn’t assigned the jaw to a species yet because they hope to find more parts, but say that it most closely resembles H. habilis.
