i notice that in certain groups that live in separate geography can look similar. this can be seen in certain SE and north asian groups and inuit or native americans (north, south) or between andamanese, sentinelese and certain SSA negrids. can anyone telling me why certain groups can look really like even in certain far locations?

Distance generally helps isolate and define a taxon such as Andamanids from Sub Saharan Africans; Andamanids are only one homogenous taxon whereas SSAs are diverse. I think Melanesids have two variants which are Palae Melanesid and Neo Melanesid whereas in Nilotics its just one taxon mostly which is Nilote but as you move away from the Nilotic center there are some different sorts of shadings and types.

East Asians,Amerindians and Inuits are all Mongoloids and Andamanese,Sentinelese are Negroid.

i thought amerindians/native americans are amerinoids separate but eskimo is mongoloid.

So andamanese, jarawa, sentinelese are negroid?

For intents and purposes 3(Caucasoid,Mongoloid and Negroid)the reason I say that is because there is some debate over whether Australoids(The indigenous peoples of Australia constitute a race amongst themselves or a subset of one of the aforementioned races.(For instance in the article about race in the R encyclopedia from a 1960's volume of World Book encyclopedia set I used to have,it considered them to be "Archaic Caucasoids")

Khoisanids are a Negroid subtype and Amerindians are Mongoloids.

African pygmies are said to be Negrillo:



Andamanese islanders are said to be Negrito:



Bantu are said to be Negroid:



Note: The oldest Negroid skeleton found until today is around 12,000 years old (Iwo Eleru). Both Negrito and Negrillo should be of more ancient substrate as genetic studies indicate.

Coon made a distinction between the African pygmies and African negroes, though he included them on the Congoid race.

Cavalli-Sforza, stated that the Pygmies are very distinct, genetically speaking, compared with other Bantu language speakers. His theory is that Pygmies had their own distinct language in the past, but have since adopted the language of the Bantu peoples that live around them.
In my opinion, pygmies seem to have more primitive skulls overall, as well.


Veddoid are said to be derived from the Australoid main group.



Veddah from Sri Lanka.

Australoids are said to be varied in origins. Some are archaic Caucasoids, some are archaic Caucasoids combined with Negritoid, some are archaic Caucasoids combined with Denisovan (archaic hominid) or even with Negritoid as well.

Btw, African Pygmies are said to have some archaic hominid admixture as well (still not identified).

There are also some suggestions about the same happening with the Andamanese, but I did never read nothing about it, only saw it on a documentary.
