Résumé / Abstract

There are now eleven known mandibular remains from the Lower and Middle Pleistocene of Java, all but one being from the Sangiran site. All of these have been assigned to Homo erectus by most workers, while others have suggested as many as four different hominoid taxa. The author finds that the jaws cannot be a homogeneous sample. Morphologically, they are a mixture of undoubted H. erectus, H. meganthropus, and possibly a pongid. If the jaws are all H. erectus then they have a sexual dimorphism exceeding that of modern gorillas. The case of Pithecanthropus dubius (Sangiran 5) is even less certain; even its hominid status is disputed. If it is indeed Homo it must be placed with the other H. meganthropus specimens. Its size and morphology are well beyond the known range any H. erectus.
