Homo neanderthalensis var. krapinensis Gorjanovic-Kramberger, 1902
Year: 1902
Taxonomic Rank: Species
Holotype: Krapina 5
Status: Potentially valid

Gorjanovic-Kramberger (1902) suggested that the Krapina specimens are of the same general form as neanderthal but a different race. He writes,

"Wiewohl also der Mensch von Krapina -- wie gezeigt wurde -- zweifelshone dem Formenkreise des Homo neanderthalensis angehurt so scheint er uns doch, was den Langen-Breiten-Index anlangt, ein andere Rasse darzustellen. Homo neanderthalensis aus dem Neanderthale ist ein an der oberen Grenze stehender Mesocephalus, der Homo von Krapina aber ist -- wie schon bemerekt wurd -- ein Hyper-Brachycephalus, welcher auch demgemass ein andere Rasse oder Varietat des Homo neanderthalensis darstellt, welche man fuglich als Homo neanderthalensis var. Krapinensis bezeichnen und unterscheiden konnte." (pp. 204-205)

Which translates roughly to:

"Although the Krapina man - as has been shown - doubtlessly belongs to the circle of forms of Homo neanderthalensis, he seems to us to represent a different race as far as the long-width index is concerned. Homo neanderthalensis from the Neander valley is at the upper limit for mesocephalic, but the Homo from Krapina is - as has already been noted - hyper-brachycephalic, which accordingly represents another breed or variety of Homo neanderthalensis, which is suitably called Homo neanderthalensis var. Krapinensis in order to designate and differentiate them." 

Campbell (1965) assumed the holotype of this nomen to be associated with the parietal and occipital fragments described by Gorjanovic-Kramberger (1902) and belonging to Krapina D. Since that time the Krapina specimens have been resorted and that material is now identified as Krapina 5 (Caspari and Radovcic, 2006). 

Note that Article 45.6 of the ICZN states that the use of var. prior to 1961 is considered subspecific (as opposed to infraspecific) and thus coordinates at the species rank.
