A new human species called “Homo bodoensis” has been found in Ethiopia’s Awash River valley, thought to have lived at the same time as Homo Sapiens and Neanderthals. This species may be the greatest ancestor of humans.

Researchers announced that a human species that lived in Africa about 500,000 years ago was named ‘Homo bodoensis’.

Research findings published in the Journal of Evolutionary Anthropology indicate that this newly named species lived at the same time as Homo sapiens and Neanderthals.

One of the authors of the study, Dr. from the University of Winnipeg, Canada. Mirjana Roksandic states that ‘it is impossible to talk about human evolution in this period due to the lack of proper terminology for human geographical variations’.

Under the new classification, Homo bodoensis will be able to explain the majority of Central Pleistocene people from Africa and South East Europe.


Christopher Bae, of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Hawaii, said the definition of Homo bodoensis “will untie Gordion’s knot” for this period, which is important in human evolution.


Due to the fact that the international Zoological Nomenklatura Commission’s name change rules are very strict, naming a new species is not easy.
