One more hobbits. The new type of the person is open


Homo luzonensis combine lines of several types of people and also more ancient гоминин - Australopithecuses and parantrop. On the Philippine island of Luzon remains of at least three died-out people of an unknown look are found and called Homo luzonensis. They lived more than 50 thousand years ago and united in themselves both the progressive lines of the modern person, and ancient typical for Australopithecuses. As Homo luzonensis appeared on the island and what types of the died-out people were their immediate family, still it is necessary to find out. The correspondent.net tells details. A contradictory type of the person Group of scientists under the direction of Florent Detroi from National Natural History Museum in Paris and Armand Salvador Mijares from the Philippine university presented a number of finds in the publication in the Nature edition at once. They declared a new type of the person, based on remains of feet, hands, teeth and the top part of a hip. These fragments of a skeleton essentially differ from other remains of the ancient person. People lived on Luzon in a pleistocene. Last year scientists reported about a find on the island of stone tools and bones of a rhinoceros with cutting traces stone tools about 700 thousand years ago. Before the people living in a cave of Callao at least 67 thousand years ago were considered as the most ancient inhabitants of the island. Morphologically remains combine lines of several types of people and also more ancient гоминин - Australopithecuses and parantrop. In particular, H.luzonensis premolyara by the size and a form reminded both molars of people, and Australopithecuses and parantrop. Scientists tried to allocate from DNA remains to define the sequence of a genome. But, as well as in a case with skeletons of other ancient people found in tropics, attempts were not crowned with success. The small size and primitiveness they amazingly remind a skeleton of the representatives of the person of Flores (Homo floresiensis) c of the Indonesian island of Flores who received the unofficial name according to the story by D.R.R. Tolkien Hobbit. But in respect of anatomic details the Luzon and Flores hobbits differ from each other so that they cannot be defined as representatives of one look, researchers note. In general, Detroi, Mijares and their colleagues could not give the answer to a question as both finds fit into a family tree of mankind. Some parts of a skeleton suit even rather to a homo sapiens, than other possible relatives that in fact cannot be as at that time the modern person did not reach to the islands of Flores or Luzon yet. Remains of avtrolopitek of the person Luzon and the person Flores remind different types of Australopithecuses who inhabited Asia and southern Africa many millions years ago. Besides, there are similarities to massive fossil parantropa and to the person skillful. Luzon it is a little people, but could climb trees, point curved brushes and feet to it. Leaving Africa, the person orthograde lost a large amount of the ancient signs. It is possible steles
