The Woranso-Mille hominids show that there is no compelling evidence to falsify the hypothesis of ‘chronospecies pair’ or ancestor–descendant relationship between Au.

New hominid fossils from Woranso-Mille (Central Afar, Ethiopia) and taxonomy of early Australopithecus.

The Woranso-Mille hominids cannot be unequivocally assigned to either taxon due to their dental morphological intermediacy, but could be an indication that the Kanapoi, Allia Bay, and Asa Issie Au.

A new species of the genus Australopithecus (Primates: Hominidae) from the Pliocene of eastern Africa

Careful evaluation of the material has led to the recognition of a distinctive suite of morphological traits distinguishing the Laetolil and Hadar remains from other hominid taxa, indicating the necessity of assigning these fossils to a new and more primitive species of Australopithecus.

New species from Ethiopia further expands Middle Pliocene hominin diversity

The new species from Woranso–Mille shows that there were at least two contemporaneous hominin species living in the Afar region of Ethiopia between 3.3 and 3.5 million years ago, and further confirms early hom inin taxonomic diversity in eastern Africa during the Middle Pliocene epoch.

A 3.8-million-year-old hominin cranium from Woranso-Mille, Ethiopia

A nearly complete hominin cranium from Woranso-Mille (Ethiopia) that is date to 3.8 million years ago is described, providing the first glimpse of the entire craniofacial morphology of the earliest known members of the genus Australopithecus.

Age and context of mid-Pliocene hominin cranium from Woranso-Mille, Ethiopia

Analysis of chemically correlated volcanic layers and the palaeomagnetic stratigraphy, combined with Bayesian modelling of dated tuffs, yield an age range of 3.804 ± 0.013 to 3.014 million years old for the deltaic strata and the fossils that they contain.

"Lucy" redux: a review of research on Australopithecus afarensis.

The discovery and naming of A. afarensis coincided with important developments in theory and methodology in paleoanthropology; in addition, important fossil and genetic discoveries were changing expectations about hominin divergence dates from extant African apes.
