Human evolution - Human evolution - The fossil evidence: By million years ago at least one hominin species, Au. afarensis, was an adept walker. In addition to anatomic evidence from this time, there is also a metre (foot) trackway produced by three individuals who walked at a leisurely pace on moist volcanic ash at Laetoli in northern Tanzania.   Another fossil species contemporaneous with A. afarensis existed in East Africa: Kenyanthropus platyops ( million years ago). The fossils show a combination of features unlike that of any other forms: brain size, dentition, details of nasal region resemble genus Australopithecus; flat face, cheek area, brow ridges resemble later hominids.

  Another possibility is that some of the Chinese fossils, including the Dali skull, represent the mysterious Denisovans, a species identified from Siberian fossils . Unearthing an H. erectus fossil dating to around 2 million years ago in South Africa considerably expands that species’ range at an early stage of its evolution, says paleoanthropologist John.

The out-of-Africa narrative is based on the re-examination of the skull and upper jaw of a seven-million-year-old fossil that had been tucked away for decades in a university museum drawer.   Fossil hunters have discovered a new species of dinosaur that has been hidden in plain sight in a South African museum collection for 30 years.

This is a tentative partial list of transitional fossils (fossil remains of groups that exhibits both "primitive" and derived traits). The fossils are listed in series, showing the transition from one group to another, representing significant steps in the evolution of major features in various lineages.

This magnificent volume is a clear and comprehensive review of the African mammalian fossil record over the past 65 million years.

It includes current taxonomic and systematic revisions of all African mammal taxa, detailed compilations of fossil site occurrences, and a wealth of information regarding paleobiology, phylogeny, and biogeography. Primates, including hominins, are particularly well.
