Abstract [en]

Peking Man, originally named Sinanthropus pekinensis and now known as Homoerectus pekinensis, was among the best documented extinct hominids before the catastrophic lossof almost all the material in 1941. The only diagnostic specimens to survive from the originalexcavations are some teeth in the paleontological collections of Uppsala University, Sweden(PMU). Here we report on the discovery of a new tooth in the PMU collection with notes on thehistory of the three previously known teeth. Together they represent the first four specimens ofPeking Man ever collected.
