Proconsul is an extinct genus of primates that existed from 23 to 25
million years ago during the Miocene epoch. Fossil remains are present
in Eastern Africa including Kenya and Uganda. Four species have been
classified to date: P. africanus, Proconsul gitongai
, Proconsul major and Proconsul meswae. The four
species differ mainly in body size. Environmental reconstructions for
the Early Miocene Proconsul sites are still tentative and range from
forested environments to more open, arid grasslands.
The first specimen, a partial jaw discovered in 1909 by a gold
prospector at Koru, near Kisumu in western Kenya, was also the oldest
fossil hominoid known until recently, and the first fossil mammal ever
found in sub-Saharan Africa.
