Abstract: In February 1963, anthropological studies of the fingerprints and palmar dermatoglyphics were made on the inhabitants of three islands, viz. Ishigakijima, Taketomijima and Kuroshima Islands in the Yaeyama Archipelago, the Ryukyus. The data were compared with those of previous studies on the inhabitants of the northern and southern districts in Okinawa Island, Tokunoshima Island in Amami Archipelago, Satsuma and Osumi of Kagoshima Prefecture. The samples of the studies consisted of 983 males and 1,012 females. The results obtained were as follows. 1) In the fingerprints, in both sexes, type S was detected most frequently, followed by type OW, ODS and B, except Kuroshima Island in male (OW, S, ODS and B type). 2) The frequency of type OW was higher in Kuroshima Island than in Ishigakijima and Taketomijima Islands. However, B and S types, in both sexes, were less frequent in Kuroshima Island. 3) As to the dermatoglyphics, in botn sexes, the frequencies of Negro type and type 7 were higher in Kuroshima Island than in other two islands. However, White type and type 11 were higher frequent in Ishigakijima and Taketomijima Islands. 4) In comparison with other districts, it was pointed out that the fingerprints and dermatoglyphics of the inhabitants in Ishigakijima and Taketomijima Islands were similar to those in Okinawa and Tokunoshima Islands. But the inhabitants in Kuroshima Island was relatively similar to those in Satsuma and Osumi of Kagoshima Prefecture.
