|Name||Description||Graphic comparison with humans|
|Flatwoods monster||Tall humanoid with a spade-shaped head.|
||Grey-skinned humanoids, usually 3–4 feet tall, bald, with black almond-shaped eyes, nostrils without a nose, slits for mouths, no ears and 3-4 fingers including thumb. They have been the centre of quite a few cases of alleged alien contact over the years.|
|Hopkinsville goblin||Small, greenish-silver humanoids.|
|Little green men||Diminutive green humanoids. Even though a few abduction or contact cases have referred to green skin no report has ever involved anything that would fit the classic cultural stereotype of "Little Green Men". They are included here only for cultural reference.|
|Nordic aliens||Humanoids with stereotypical "Nordic features" (tall, blond hair, blue eyes) and have featured in several cases of contact.|
