Diggings in Philippine cave find new early human species

The new species is dubbed Homo luzonensis after the island of Luzon where its remains were found

A handout image made available by Florent Detroit and taken on August 9, 2011 shows a view of the excavation in the Callao Cave in the north of Luzon Island, in the Philippines, where an international multidisciplinary team discovered a new hominin species, Homo Luzonensis. An international multidisciplinary team, co-led by a MNHN senior lecturer of the H & E department, Florent Détroit, discovered a new hominin species, Homo Luzonensis, during the excavation of Callao Cave, situated on Luzon island, Northern Philippines. Published in the journal Nature, the study of the fossils dated to 50 to 67 000 years highlights a singular mosaic of morphological characteristics that differentiates Homo luzonensis from other species of the genus Homo and underlines the major role played by Island Southeast Asia in the evolutionary history of hominines.
