    According to a 2009 New York Times article, there are some who believe that Homo floresiensis specimens are merely bones of humans that suffered from genetic or pathological conditions that stunted growth. However, “scientists who reviewed hobbit research at an April 2009 symposium said that a consensus had emerged among experts in support of the initial interpretation that Homo floresiensis is a distinct hominid species” that is considered “primitive” in comparison to Homo sapiens. These scientists admitted that their finding was indeed controversial. However, studies of the species’ lower limbs revealed differences in bone structure that make them unique from Homo sapiens.
