New DNA strands have been found inside a modern tribe of Melanesians linking them to a heretofore undiscovered breed of humans. The theory is that the DNA does not come from a Neanderthal or Denisovan (which are the two ancient species we most closely relate humans with).
Scientists believe that they come from a new undiscovered species that derived from the South Pacific, northeast of Austrailia.

Bohlender a scientist who studies DNA and its historical significance conducted a study looking at humans and how they are linked to Neanderthals and Denisovans.
He concluded that at this current point we are not looking at humans ancient history fully. This is where Bohlender introduces his third species that had a critical role is there period and can help explain why we have unknown DNA in humans.
Although all of these may be true we do not have that much are evidence that this third species even existed.Only a few teeth, bones and missing links have been found. This does not mean that there are a whole different species waiting to be discovered because we do not have enough proof or peer review to stamp this information factual.
