Somatoscopic traits of human

Česky English

ears - incisura intertragica shape (ii)

We evaluate this trait from the profile view of the head in Frankfurt horizontal plane. The edges of ii converge in the direction of the lobule and if the branches aim perpendicularly (together with the base, they form a U-shape) or if they converge at an angle (together with the base, they form a V-shape), we describe its shape. If the ii branches are asymmetrical and converge at the base in a different manner, we describe its shape as irregular. 1. U-shaped, 2. V-shaped, 3. irregular shape.
