Africanthropus Dryer, 1935
Year: 1935
Taxonomic Rank: Genus
Holotype: Florisbad 1
Status: Potentially valid

Dryer (1935) established the sub-genus, Africanthopus as Homo (Africanthropus) helmei, with the Florisbad skull as the holotype. Campbell (1965) recognizes the genus as available, as does Groves (1989) who treats it as a subjective junior synonym to Homo. Keith (1938) provides an early description of the Florisbad specimen. Bruner and Lombard (2020) provide and updated review of the morphology and phylogenetic interpretations.
