  Hi,

 >So overall, the large bodied hominoids appear to uniquely share a 
larger upper number of vallate papillae than in other primates (so this 
would be another synapomorphy for large bodied hominoids).

wouldn't that depend on the tree? if orangutans and humans clade 
together then yes... if they don't then you have another homoplasy for 
large bodied hominoids, or?
