Metanthropus Sollas, 1933
Year: 1933
Taxonomic Rank: Genus
Holotype: Neanderthal 1
Status: Unavailable
Remark: Lacks type specimen or species

Sollas (1933) suggested the genus name Metanthrpus for neanderthals based on morphometrics of sagital sections, however in this nomenclatural act Sollas did not indicate a type species which is required under the ICZN for publications after 1930. The name is thus unavailable.
