This adult female specimen of Au. sediba discovered at Malapa Cave includes upper dentition, a partial mandible and a partial postcranial specimen. Comparison of the size of MH2 and the male juvenile MH1 shows that the species Au. sediba has a level of sexual dimorphism similar to that in modern humans.
