-Species: Homo floresiensis
-Notes: The 18,000 year old Homo floresiensis skull (Flores Skull LB1) was discovered by paleoanthropologist Peter Brown and his team on the island of Flores, Indonesia, in 2003 and reported in Nature in 2004. A skeleton of this species, which has been designated as female because of the characteristics of the pelvis, shows that in maturity she was only about 3.3 feet tall with a small cranial capacity of only 380 cc. . Stone tools and evidence of butchery were also found at this site. H. floresiensis is the subject of much debate centering on whether it is a new human species, or a case of insular dwarfism of a small H. erectus population. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
