Thirty-seven (37) palm and finger prints of the Male of the Rajmahal Hills, Bihar, India, were collected in 1965 from two villages. On the basis of anthropometric and ABO-blood group data the Mâlé have been ethnically considered as ‘Australoid'. The present dermatoglyphic data do not follow the proposed Australoid Whorl: Loop ratio of 60:40. It has been found to be 51:47 or nearly a 50:50 ratio. The palm prints have been studied for the main line formulae, the transversality, the hypothener patterns, the interdigital patterns, the frequencies of axial triradii, the atd' angle and the main line index. © 1969 S.
