Homo rudolfensis was a species of the genus Homo, existing 1.9 million years ago, that is known only through a handful of representative fossils, the first of which was discovered in 1972 at Lake Turkana in Kenya by Bernard Ngeneo, a member of a team led by anthropologist Meave and Richard Leakey. In 2012 Meave Leakey discovered further fossils, consisting of a face and two jawbones [Leakey 2012].
