Abstract: The anatomical study of the calavaria of the human specimen of Liang Bua is the opportunity to undertake a cladistic analysis to bring evidence of its taxonomical position and to contribute to discuss its phylogenetic story. As an alternative to the opinions that swing between <i>Homo floresiensis</i> and a pathological case of <i>Homo sapiens sapiens</i>, the phylogenetic analysis provide the possible occurrence of a short <i>Homo erectus</i>.
