 Comments
       
  Comment: Comments: Included with Homo in subtribe Hominina by McKenna and Bell (1997). A subgenus of Homo according to M. Goodman et al. (1998, 2001); Watson et al. (2001) also included it in Homo. In accordance with Opinion 1368 (International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1985c), Pan is used instead of Chimpansee. Reviewed by Hill (1969)
