This and other hominid fossils point up the current systematics absurdity
that morphology is unreliable and so hominid systematics must be based on
molecular similarity for living and subfossil taxa but then do a turnaround
and say that morphology is completely reliable for recognizing, let along
classifying, hominid fossils as hominid. Crazy, crazy. I've said this
before of course, but there has been no substantial justification that I
have seen other than rhetorical claims of belief. One of the dark corridors
of systematic theory.
