Title: Analysis of tooth morphotypes of Neogene Hominoids
Year: 1990

Pages: 11-24.

Abstract: In order to obtain a correct interpretation of the phylogenetic relations of Rudapithecus hungaricus from the Rudabánya locality (Hungary) 72 M3 tooth morphotypes of Hominoids from Africa, Europe and Asia were analyzed. The joined evaluation of five characteristics (cingulum, fovea anterior, extra conulus between the Med and End, and the End Hld, and fovea posterior) have been accomplished. Similar morphotypes could be found with the African Early and Middle Miocene and the European Middle Miocene Great Apes. However, these differ from the Eurasian Turolian Hominoids which are similar with each other. Probably the method elaborated for the Hominoids cannot be directly applied for the Hominoids. With 1 table and 4 figures.
