A perennial problem from Australia...

"Nowhere else is the record for modern human origins so deeply, utterly entangled as it is in Australasia. At the heart of the knot is a weird duality in the fossil record itself. While some of the early modern humans from Australia look much like people today, others bear all the markings of a more robust kind of human, with thick skull bones, swollen browridges, and huge teeth, even bigger than those of Homo erectus in some specimens." ... Australia poses special problems for the Out-of-Africa scenario..."
