The main article for this category is Hominina.

This category lists members of the subtribe Hominina, which includes humans, including all early human fossils classified in the genus Homo beginning roughly 2 million years ago. Our species of Homo sapiens and its inner-species variability forms a true sub-category of this one, covering about 0.2 million years, or the latter 10% of "humans" in the taxonomical sense.

The taxon "Hominina" is not used by all paleoanthropologists as it is functionally equivalent with the "Homo" genus; this category for practical reasons doubles as the "Homo (genus)" category, equivalent to the "human" category in taxonomical terms (while Category:Humans has the much wider scope of human society and culture etc.)

It is a true subcategory of Category:Hominini taxonomically which includes related fossils outside of Homo back to about 6 million years ago.
