Bonde (2012) proposed a new genus, Afaranthropus with Homo antiquus Ferguson, 1984 as the type species. Homo antiquus is based on A.L. 288-1 as the type specimen. Homo antiquus is available but invalid because the name is pre-occupied by Homo antiquus Adloff, 1908. Article 67.2 of the Code indicates that a nominal species may be used as a type species for a genus if it is "cited in the original publication by an available name." Homo antiquus is so cited and available, thus Afaranthropus is potentially valid.
