We note that any reference in the original text to P. retropinnis is in fact referring to P. mokelembembe, and vice versa.
Secondly, in our published cranio-facial morphology figure (Fig. four in the original study), the symbols for P. endlicheri congicus and P. e. endlicheri were switched. We have corrected this below (Fig. 3). Because both taxa are characterized by lower jaw protrusion, this correction does not substantially change our conclusions.
