Malapa Cave – Australopithecus sediba – revisited

Quite a while ago again, I wrote a few words on the A. Sediba finds. The fossils have been controversially described as the ancestors of Homo. Now a number of specialists have met at two occasions and discussed the fossils. The arguments seem strong, esp. those concerning the pelvis and brain size, but go and have a look at the Scientific American for a good summary of the discussion results and decide for yourself.
