This article reads more like a Meave Leakey press release than scientific reporting. Without attribution or support, it lists as facts many assertions still widely contested, such as that these fossils represent a new species, let alone a new genus. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:40, 1 November 2013 (UTC)


Hello! I added some information to the Kenyanthropus platyops article. As it was, the article was short, and did not include the anthropological significance of the find. I attempted to create a re-direct from Flat-faced man to Kenyanthropus (a term with which the non-anthropologist individuals would be most familiar), but I couldn't get it to work. Would someone else give it a try? I'll check back later. Thanks! Firecircle (talk) 21:41, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Done. All you need to do is create a link someplace like this: Flat-faced man. then follow the link and add the redirect info. (Go here to see what it looks like.) - UtherSRG (talk) 22:19, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Firecircle (talk) 23:49, 7 January 2008 (UTC) Hey, great! I tried it and it works great. Thanks for the help and the info (as well as the fast response). Firecircle (talk) 23:49, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

The fossils of Kenyanthropus platyops indicate that hominins were more taxonomically diverse during the middle Pliocene."

Ummm - 'more taxonomically diverse - than - what, exactly, please? Possibly H. sapiens today, which may not indicate huge diversity . . . . .

Australopithecus platyops[edit]

The justifications presented for sinking this into Australopithecus are terrible. Is there any primary literature that suggests this? (talk) 19:19, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
