Analysis[edit]

In a morphometric analysis including Predmost3 (with five differing hominid skull finds) of variables in cranium dimensions [cranio-facial traits] compared to Homo sapiens sapiens Predmost three was found to correlate to a 73% similarity.(Lubson,Corruccini)[9]

The skull belongs to a morphological Upper Palaeolithic group that is including Grotte des Enfants 4, Barma Grande 5 and Pavlov and Sunghir 1.[11]
