A mouse-sized primate known as Teilhardina eventually gave rise to today’s monkeys, apes and humans. But one of the persistent mysteries about this distant relative of ours is where it came from. New research by University of Florida doctoral graduate Paul Morse shows that Teilhardina brandti, a species found in Wyoming, is as old or older than its Asian and European relatives, upending the prevailing hypothesis that this early primate first appeared in China.
