Can you identify this fossil?
Thanks to an old classmate of mine, Darrin, for this one:
A 47 million-year-old fossil may be from a primate species related to humans, apes and monkeys. Michigan paleontology Professor Philip Gingeric said the newly discovered fossil also supports the adapid The Wall Street Journal said Monday. A major ongoing evolutionary debate is focused on whether humans descended from an ape-like group called the tarsidae, the known descendants of the modern Asian primate tarsier, or the adapidae, whose modern descendant is Madagascar's lemur.,
Gingeric said the new fossil offers evidence for the latter and traditionally less accepted theory.
