The biggest question I think with the Homo genus when they found another distinct remains is new species? or new subspecies ? Probably that we had multiple interbreeding populations for a while with different phenotype. We know about Neanderthals DNA trace in our gene pool, probably that we have others too. Frontier between species are somewhat vague and more so with fossils.

First Meganthropus, and now this; it's turning out to be a good week for paleoanthropology.

This is one more nail in the "out of Africa, nothing else allowed" coffin. I can't wait to see the lame-ass rationalizations that come out about this find. You know, the ones from those with a vested interest in not challenging the reigning anthropological paradigm. Thomas Kuhn summed it up years ago.

In no way does this 67,000 year old Asian species dispute the "out-of-Africa" origin for Homo.

Not for Homo Sapien.

No rationalizations required, since "out of Africa" applies to anatomically modern Humans, and not earlier species of Homo.

What IS required, though, is some inkling of what you're talking about before you make a stupid claim like that.

Homo Erectus made it to Java a million yrs ago so why would it be impossible for other hominid lines to do likewise? Australia has evidence of occupation for 60 kbp why would any of this be more than welcome than evidence of hominid expansion?
