Within each species, finds are sorted by the order of their discovery. "ARA-VP, Sites 1, 6 & 7", Ardipithecus ramidus Discovered by a team led by Tim White, Berhane Asfaw and Gen Suwa (1994) in 19 at Aramis in Ethiopia. ARA-VP-6/1 consists of 10 teeth from a single individual. About 45% of her skeleton was found, including most of the skull, pelvis, hands and feet, and many limb bones.Each species has a type specimen which was used to define it. If the fossil was originally placed in a different species, that name will also be given. ARA-VP-7/2 consists of parts of all three bones from the left arm of a single individual, with a mixture of hominid and ape features. She was about 120 cm (3'11") tall and weighed about 50 kg (110 lbs).TM 1512, Australopithecus africanus (was Plesianthropus transvaalensis) Discovered by Robert Broom in 1936 at Sterkfontein in South Africa (Broom 1936).The second australopithecine fossil found, it consisted of parts of the face, upper jaw and braincase.The teeth of this skull showed it to be from an infant about 5 or 6 years old (it is now believed that australopithecines matured faster than humans, and that the Taung child was about 3).The brain size was 410 cc, and would have been around 440 cc as an adult.
One sometimes reads that all hominid fossils could fit in a coffin, or on a table, or a billiard table.
(Creationist arguments) AL 444-2, Australopithecus afarensis Discovered by Bill Kimbel and Yoel Rak in 1991 at Hadar in Ethiopia (Kimbel et al. According to its finders, it strengthens the case that all the First Family fossils were members of the same species, because the differences between AL 444-2 and the smaller skulls in the collection are consistent with other sexually dimorphic hominoids. This is a mostly complete, but heavily distorted, cranium with a large, flat face and small teeth.
KNM-WT 40000, Kenyanthropus platyops Discovered by Justus Erus in 1999 at Lomekwi in Kenya (Leakey et al. The brain size is similar to that of australopithecines.
The find consisted of a full face, teeth and jaws, and an endocranial cast of the brain.
It is between 2 and 3 million years old, but it and most other South African fossils are found in cave deposits that are difficult to date.
