Australopithecus is sometimes referred to as the gracile (slender) australopithecines they appeared earlier in the fossil record than paranthropus, which are often called the robust australopithecines. They resembled man through the weak development of the jawbones, the absence of protuberant fangs, a prehensile hand with a developed thumb, and an ability to stand erect the brain was relatively large (500-600 cubic meters), but differed little in structure from the brain of the present-day humanoid apes.

Australopithecus africanus is an extinct species of the australopithecines, the first of an early ape-form species to be classified as hominin (in 1924) recently it was dated as living between 33 and 21 million years ago, or in the late pliocene and early pleistocene times it is debated as being a direct ancestor of modern humans [2.
