    Why do people claim this fossil is not a close relative hominid and rather a strepshirrine primate despite the fact that the fossil possesses nails, a loss of grooming claws and a short rostrum?

    Because it is european. This does not appease nor pander to the wishes, wants or agendas of some.

    Bullshit, plain and simple. if you are going to respond stay on track.

    The Darwinius page in Wikipedia does a decent job covering the controversy. Darwinius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It seems to me that there is no consensus yet within the scientific community. In my humble opinion, it appears to look like an early anthropoid primate.
