A new hominid species called Homo naledi has been reported from Dinaledi Chamber by  a team of South African researchers.  It is proposed that the individuals spanned the transition between Australopithecines and Homo.  A special will air on PBS on September 16 and an online publication in eLife  also documents the find.
