Schoetensack (1908) provides a monograph treatment of the Mauer mandible and proposes the nomen Homo heidelbergensis with the Mauer mandible as the holotype. Mounier et al. (2011) includes the Mauer mandible as part of a detailed morphometric analysis of mandibles. Stringer (2012) and Buck and Stringer (2014) argue for the continued usage of the nomen. Athreya and Hopkins (2021) provide an alternative view on the nomenclature of Middle Pleistocene Homo.
