As of 2013 up to 500 fossils had yet to be identified. In the late 19th century Eugene Dubois found Pithecantropus eretus in the Trinil area.

Researchers found in Trinil site that scratch at Pseudodon vondembuschianus trinilensis plain water clam shell aged 500,000 years is the oldest scratch in the world.
