Homo (Pithecanthropus) ternifinus Dolinar-Osole, 1956
Year: 1956
Taxonomic Rank: Species
Lectotype: Tighennif 1
Status: Invalid
Remark: Objective synonym

Dolinar-Osole (1956) discussed the morphology of the Tighennif (Ternifne) mandibles 1 and 2 and suggested that a genus level distinction such as Atlanthropus proposed by Arambourg was "premature". Dolinar-Osole proposed Homo (Pithecanthropus) atlanticus or ternifinus.

A rough English translation of the original Slovenian sheds light on Dolinar-Osole’s philosophy of nomenclature, 
"In our view of the hominid system, the name of the new specimen should read Homo (Pithecanthropus) mauritanicus, atlanticus or ternifinus, where the first names indicate affiliation by signs, and the third the place of the site. Obviously Arambourg does not find it necessary to combine equally high levels of development into a generic name.” (pp. 178-179)

Campbell (1965) listed the name as an available objective junior synonym of Atlanthropus mauritanicus Arambourg, 1954.
