Fig. 3: There is clear separation between African apes and H. sapiens. Dinaledi, along with Au. afarensis (A.L. 333-8) and Au. sediba (MH2) fall outside the human range of variation.

There’s also a clear separation between reality and your cognitive abilities, so what of it?


Explain. I don't see how an ape with so many arboreal features can be called a member of the Homo genus.

Humans are apes.

All true members of the Homo genus lack arboreal adaptations.
