(NYT30) UNDATED -- April 11, 2005 -- SCI-FOSSILS -- This reconstructed skull was thought to belong to the earliest known humanlike primate. But some researchers said the skull was too apelike to be a hominid. Several other researchers disputed the interpretation, contending that the skull was too apelike to be a hominid. So the discoverers went back to Chad and found additional evidence, particularly two jawbones and an upper premolar tooth, that they say confirms their original conclusion.
