Illustration by Philippe Coudray of the kakundakari, a well-known cryptohominid of the Congo.

Cryptohominids, the subject of hominology, have been reported from most regions of Africa.[1][2][3][4] Some cryptozoologists have drawn connections between African hominids and those reported from other continents.[5]

Notable researchers of African hominology have included Charles Cordier, Bernard Heuvelmans, Jacqueline Roumeguère-Eberhardt, and Gareth Patterson, and some of the principal works covering the subject are Les Bêtes Humaines d'Afrique (1980) and Les Hominidés Non Identifiés des Forêts d'Afrique (1984). Except for chapters in Abominable Snowmen: Legend Come to Life (1961) and Beyond the Secret Elephants (2020), little research has been published in English.[6]
