Dear All,

Glad to see that s.a.p. continues with the usual mixture of invective and
debate. Could someone please refresh my memory and tell me what was the
name of that new austrolpith from ?Chad (well new last year). I haven't
been following the debate over its taxonomy as I've been buried in the
European late Pleistocene. I would appreciate a summary of where you lot
think this fossil fits into the scheme of things. Please post to the group
if you feel that it is worthwhile, however if you feel that this question
is talked-out I would appreciate an off-list opinion.
