Specimen Data (Morphology)

This specimen is a partial adult skeleton made up mostly of the right side. It includes the ribs, scapula, arm bones, patella and tibia fragment. There is gap in the tooth row behind the third right molar. This specimen has no chin. The mid face doesn't project as much which some might think suggests hybridization with humans.
