Moved info from Rhodesian Man here to break up species info from fossil info and make the naming convention consistent with other human evolution articles. See Talk:Rhodesian Man for more info. Nowimnthing 23:58, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Homo sapiens?[edit]

Why does "Archaic Homo sapiens" link to Homo rhodiensis? Kortoso (talk) 20:54, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

This redirect is obviously wrong, particularly as rhodesiensis is now regarded by many palaeontologists as another name for heidelbergensis, which is considered pre-sapiens. However there is no good alternative so far as I can see. One possiblity would be Human#Evidence from the fossil record, which briefly mentions the (disputed) archaic homo sapiens species. Another would be to redirect to an disambig page which lists the candidates, such as Omo remains, Homo sapiens idaltu and Skhul and Qafzeh hominids. Best of all of course would be for someone to create a good article on archaic homo sapiens. Dudley Miles (talk) 12:54, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Merge with H. heidelbergensis?[edit]

Is mainstream paleontology agreed enough on this matter that the world can tolerate Wikipedia merging articles on Homo heidelbergensis and Homo rhodesiensis? Kortoso (talk) 19:14, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
