EV 9002

Field number for a fossil hominid found at Quyuanhekou, Yunxian County, China; one of two of the most complete Middle Pleistocene crania from China. Provisionally dated to about 350 kya, EV 9002 is the largest cranium recovered from the region. Although a number of mid—facial features are reminiscent of archaic or early modern Homo sapiens, the hominid is attributed to Homo erectus.

Cf. EV 9001.
