An analysis of DNA taken from the Altai Mountains in Siberia has revealed that another species of humans may have lived with modern humans (Homo sapiens) and Neanderthals (Homo neanderthalensis) about 40,000 years ago. The ancient hominid member is being informally called X-Woman.

 

 


A third human type hominid was possibly discovered from a complete mitochondrial (mt) DNA sequence.

A hominid is any member of the family Hominidae, which includes extinct (no longer in existence) and extant (presently existing) humans, bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans.

The DNA sample was originally taken in 2008 from Denisova Cave, which is located the Altai Mountains in southern Siberia.

The sample was procured from the bone of the small finger of a woman'”who is being called 'X-Woman'.

The German, American, Austrian, and Russian scientists involved in the discovery are not sure yet if this is a completely different species of human being or not.

However, they are fairly sure that the DNA found represents a separate migration of hominids out of Africa and into Asia.
