The nasal index varies from 84 to 140—a truly astonishing series of noses!
One very dark-skinned and platyrhine individual, indeed, had a nasal index of 92.
Only, the nasal index is somewhat smaller; on the whole, the nose has in its separate parts a decidedly pithecoid form.
Of the total, five are leptorhine—that is, have the “narrow” nose with nasal index below 70.
Thus it will be seen that races with a nasal index of more than 100 have a nose wider than it is long.
