This is a maxilla (upper jaw) fragment preserving the upper P4-M3 of Kamoyapithecus hamiltoni, a primate known from a site that is 24-28 million years old.  might be a catarrhine (a group including both apes and Old World monkeys) or it might already be a very early hominoid (an ape). This is the earliest evidence of a possible fossil ape in Kenya, and one of only a few large primates known from this period. The name Kamoyapithecus was given to it in recognition of the world renown fossil hunter Kamoya Kimeu
