Homo georgicus

Definition

noun

A species of the genus Homo first discovered in Dimanisi, Georgia in 1999 and 2001. The skeletal remains of the species possess features that are seemingly intermediate of Homo habilis and Homo erectus.


Supplement

The partial skull remains recovered of the H. georgicus were smaller than the modern human being and so far the smallest compared with the other hominids recovered outside Africa. The species were presumably the first hominids to have lived outside Africa.
