And now we have Homo Naledi.

Believed to predate Neanderthals and Denisovans.

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homo_naledi

Quote
Homo naledi is an extinct species of hominin, which anthropologists first described in 2015 and have assigned to the genus Homo.[2] In 2013, fossil skeletons were found in the Gauteng province of South Africa, in the Rising Star Cavesystem, part of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site about 50 km (31 mi) northwest of Johannesburg.[2][3]Prior to dating, initial judgement based on archaic features of its anatomy favoured an age of roughly two million years old.[3] In 2017, however, the fossils were dated to between 335,000 and 236,000 years ago, long after much larger-brained and more modern-looking hominins had appeared.[1][4] The research team therefore thinks that H. naledi is not a direct ancestor of modern humans, although it is probably an offshoot within the genus Homo.[5]

National Geographic reports thousands of remains humans and others in the Rising Star Cave system.
And now the question of who created all those tools is actually debatable. Scientists call the adult male skeleton Naledi, "Neo."  Smile

Yes, wondered about that, especially as Naledi predates the others I mentioned, or seems to.

Bit by bit the puzzle is being filled in, but I expect even more revelations in the not too distant future.

Quote http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-evolution-human-origins/rewriting-our-origins-skull-found-china-promotes-wider-perspective-021721

When the ‘Dali skull’ was found in the Shaanxi province of China in 1978 researchers believed it was a mostly intact skull of a Homo erectus . Yet a publication in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology reports that a more recent examination of the skull suggests it is an example of Pleistocene Homo sapiens in what is now China. Xinzhi Wu of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing has noted that these physical similarities show Homo erectus most likely shared DNA with Homo sapiens . (Extract only)

Would there be any reason to suspect that one species of Homo suddenly stopped and a new species commenced? Of course not.

Certainly with the evolution of Homo there would have been admixtures of Denisovan, Neanderthal and probably other species, with Homo.

I don't find it at all surprising that this evidence is being uncovered, and, as science progresses, I have no doubt that other DNA admixtures will be found.
