Leptoprosop individuals have a length-breadth ratio of the face greater than 88, hyperleptoprosop individuals greater than 93. Such indices typically indicate long faces. Leptoprosopy occurs in many regions with narrow noses (see nasal index): in Northwestern Europe, parts of North and East Africa, as well as West Asia. In Europe, leptoprosopy is found often in Nordics and Mediterraneans, however both have broader faced subvarieties as well. A vast region from the Levant to Persia and North India is leptoprosop. In Africa, leptoprosopy is often found in East Africans, mainly in all the different Ethiopid varieties.
