Paranthropus boisei (originally called Zinjanthropus boisei and then Australopithecus boisei until recently) was an early hominin and described as the largest of the Paranthropus species. It lived from about 2.6 until about 1.2 million years ago during the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs in Eastern Africa. (click to see all the article on Wikipedia)

Homo rudolfensis is a fossil hominin species discovered in 1972, at Koobi Fora on the east side of Lake Rudolf (now Lake Turkana) in Kenya. the fossil has an estimated age of 1.9 million years.
Originally thought to be a member of the species Homo habilis, he was the center of much debate concerning its species. Assigned initially to Homo habilis, the skull was at first incorrectly dated at nearly three million years old. (click to see all the article on Wikipedia)

Homo habilis ("handy man") is a species of the genus Homo, which lived from approximately 2.5 million to at least 1.6 million years ago at the beginning of the Pleistocene period in Tanzania, East Africa. Homo habilis (or possibly H. rudolfensis) is the earliest known species of the genus Homo. Homo habilis remains are often accompanied by primitive stone tools (e.g. Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania and Lake Turkana, Kenya). (click to see all the article on Wikipedia)

Paranthropus robustus was originally discovered in Southern Africa in 1938. The development of P. robustus, namely in cranial features, seemed to be aimed in the direction of a "heavy-chewing complex". Because of the definitive traits that are associated with this robust line of australopithecine, anthropologist Robert Broom erected the genus Paranthropus and placed this species into it.
Paranthropus robustus (considered for a time by the scientific community as Australopithecus robustus) is generally dated to have lived between 2.0 and 1.2 million years ago. (click to see all the article on Wikipedia)
