And again Haumea is the third closest dwarf planet to the sun and is located beyond the orbit of neptune. It has about 1/3 the mass of pluto and was discovered by 2004 by a team from Caltech at the Palomar Observatory in the United States in a project headed by Mike Brown. However, Haumea was also "discovered" in 2005 by a team headed by J. L. Ortiz at the Sierra Nevada Observatory in Spain - a claim which has been contested.

You can recognize Haumea because of its elongated shape. This makes it the least spherical of all the dwarf planets.
