Australopithecus
Australopithecus (, ; etymology Latin australis "southern", Greek πίθηκος pithekos "ape"; informal australopithecine or australopith) is an extinct genus of hominins. From paleontological and archaeological evidence, the Australopithecus genus apparently evolved in eastern Africa around before spreading throughout the continent and eventually becoming extinct somewhat after two million years ago. During that time, a number of australopithecine species emerged, including Australopithecus afarensisA. africanusA. anamensisA. bahrelghazaliA. deyiremeda (proposed), A. garhi, and A. sediba.
