VEGANISM IS A STRANGNESS, NOT A SPECIES:

Fossil discovery rewrites the story of human evolution (STEVE CONNOR, 09 AUGUST 2012, The Independent)

The history of human evolution is more complex than previously supposed, according to fossils showing that several species of early man once lived cheek by jowl in the same region of East Africa. [...]

The latest finds, published in the journal Nature, confirm that 1470 is a different species. The new fossilised face is almost identical to 1470, although smaller, and crucially has a set of back teeth that show it was a distinct species with a specialised, plant-eating diet, said Fred Spoor of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany.
