Remarks

Ascenzi et al. (1996) describe the Ceparano 1 cranium as Homo erectus. Manzi et al. (2001) present a morphometric analysis. Mallegni et al. (2003) establish the nomen Homo cepranensis. Nomade et al (2011) review the geochronology. Gilbert et al. (2003) reference the name conditionally in quotes and comment on relations to the Daka specimen. Numerous subsequent publications refer to the Ceprano cranium in the context of Homo erectus or Homo heidelbergensis, (e.g. Stringer 2012; Rightmire 2012; Athreya and Hopkins 2021) but do not employ the nomen Homo cepranensis.

Since the name was introduced only Mallegni et al. (2003) and Nomade et al. (2011) use the name.
