The defining characteristic of a Linnaean species cannot be established from a fossil. Many fossils cannot be attributed with certainty to a male or a female individual; we may thus be unable to determine the degree of sexual dimorphism in a fossil population. In fact, we can obtain little if any idea from the fossil record of the amount of physical variation that can be accommodated within a fossil species. Linnaeus had no concept of evolution, so it is hardly surprising that his classificatory system cannot logically be applied to a diachronic situation of species-change.

Boisei. 3 million years ago (Howell et al. 1987), by which time Homo cf. habilis was present.
