Hominid haplogroup map

Species for which genetic material is available, including living great apes, humans, and Neandertals, arranged roughly according to geographic point of origin. Arrows point from ancestral species, inferred from genetic data, to descendant species. An Asian origin for great apes is suggested, with orangutans originating later in South Asia, and the human-chimpanzee-gorilla group originating later in Africa.
