KGA 10-525

Field number for a fossil hominid found in 1993 at Konso-Gardula in Ethiopia, dated to about 1.4mya. The specimen consists of the major portion of a cranium with mandible, with an estimated cranial capacity of 545cm3. Morphologically, the specimen is comparable to Australopithecus (Paranthropus) boisei, but if included in that species would greatly extend the range of species variation.
