Homo floresiensis

Homo floresiensis

The discovery of remains belonging to a new, short-statured, human-like species has caused a stir among anthropologists because of several important characteristics it shares with modern humans. The new species is named Homo floresiensis, after the Indonesian island (Flores Island), east of Java, where the skeleton of a three-foot tall adult female was discovered.
