Facial asymmetry

The skeletal remains found in a cave on the island of Flores, Indonesia, do not represent a new species, according to an international scientific team, lead by Dr. Robert B. Eckhardt, professor of developmental genetics and evolutionary morphology, Department of Kinesiology at Penn State.

LB1 in three different views to illustrate facial asymmetry. A is the actual specimen, B is the Right side doubled at the midline and mirrored, and C is the left side doubled and mirrored. Differences in left and right side facial architectures are apparent, and illustrate growth abnormalities of LB1.
