The human being is originally African, but it is possible that the evolutionary branch of all anthropoids originates in Asia before extending to Africa. The fossil tooth of a primate discovered in Myanmar, about 37 million years ago, reinforces this hypothesis. Considered as a new species, Afrasia djijidae is known to scientists. However, when compared to the teeth of primate Afrotarsius libicus, discovered in Libya, they have found a great similarity and the researchers of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History of Pittsburgh have come to the conclusion that both remains belong to the same species. In view of the dating of both fossils, the species may have formed in Asia and spread to Africa.
