questionable teeth

Tests on teeth found in a Chinese cave in 1976 are different than the norm compared to both early humans and modern humans. Did they belong to a previously unknown species of early human or are they because of inter-breeding between the two? Nobody is positive. They need more teeth and bones to decide. The teeth are between 60,000 and 120,000 years old. Did you know for sure scientists now believe there were at least 4 early varieties of humans?  "The Neanderthals lived in Europe, the Denisovans in Asia and the "hobbit" Homo floresiensis in Indonesia: plus there was a mysterious fourth group from Eurasia that interbred with the Denisovans."
