Creases like other dermatoglyphic features are controlled by polygenic factor and stand a chance to be used in the study of ethnic, bimanual and bisexual variations. The the present investigation is to study the bimanual and bisexual variation of longitudinal palmar flexion creases among Lodhis’ of Sagar district (MP), India. The basis of the study was 103 males and 102 female unrelated individuals of Lodhis’. For taking palm prints cummins and Midlo(1859) method were fully adopted. The analysis of longitudinal palmar creases was done in accordance with the method of Eswaraiha (1977). The values in this study are of a qualitative in nature so the statistical interpretation of the data has been made by means of the chi-square test. The result shows significant bisexual and noticeable bimanual variation of longitudinal creases among Lodhis’.
