Fossilized Pinky Finger Belongs to New Species of Homonid


A fossilized finger found in a cave in the Altai mountains of southern Siberia has been dated at 40,000 years, belonging to a modern human relative.

Sequencing of the Mitochondrial DNA revealed that not only is it not the DNA of a modern human, but is also not that of a Neanderthal and is therefore an entirely new and different species of human.

Comparing Human Mt-DNA to that of a Neanderthal shows about 200 differences. Comparing Human Mt-DNA to this new species shows 400 differences, meaning that this species is about twice as far removed from us as Neanderthals were.

Most of them. Some are in southern Russia. The Himalayas are in India, China, Bhutan, Tibet, Nepal and probably a couple other countries that I forgot.
