Now that they have found DP's ancient ancestor, is this thread still relevant ?

It even has an Italian sounding name, foriensises.

Six years after their discovery, the extinct little people nicknamed hobbits who once occupied the Indonesian island of Flores remain mystifying anomalies in human evolution, out of place in time and geography, their ancestry unknown. Recent research has only widened their challenge to conventional thinking about the origins, transformations and migrations of the early human family.

it's hard to explain your regression but the dope probably has something to do with it.

It's H.floresiensis, after the island of Flores where the fossils were discovered. The scientific community is still divided as to where this species fits within the genus.

Edit. Thanks Dave. :-)

Yes, that's it. What's the fuss all about ? Every millenium has its dwarfs.

Quote:
They were very small, not much more than three feet tall, yet do not resemble any modern pygmies. They walked upright on short legs, but might have had a peculiar gait obviating long-distance running. The single skull that has been found is no bigger than a grapefruit, suggesting a brain less than one-third the size of a human’s, yet they made stone tools similar to those produced by other hominids with larger brains
...
Critics contended that these were merely modern human dwarfs afflicted with genetic or pathological disorders.
