English term or phrase: habiline(s)
Este vorba de substantivul "habiline" provenit de la denumirea stiintifica Homo habilis, într-un context precum cel de mai jos:

By around 2.3 million years ago, the first tentative record emerges of a new species, a habiline. Habilines, still poorly understood, are the “missing link” between apes and humans.

Caut o formulă cât mai firească și, dacă se poate, atestată deja în lucrări traduse în română (habiline? habilini? habilieni? habiliene? etc.)

Mulțumesc pentru sugestii.
