Abstract: Ruff (2010a, b) challenged the taxonomic attribution of the Gona fossil pelvis (BSN49/P27 (Simpson et al., 2008)) to Homo erectus based on the premise that its acetabulum is too small and outside the range of currently known early Homo. Ruff’s alternative taxonomic suggestion is that the pelvis may belong to another species, notably Australopithecus (Paranthropus) boisei. We reject these proposals for the reasons outlined below.
