Additional data on hand clasping and arm folding among 330 Manipuri Brahmins and Meitheis has been reported. Regarding hand clasping our data is in agreement with other studies although the Manipuri Brahmins possess the highest frequency (75.22%) of R trait in the whole of the world. Arm folding, however, depicted a significant departure; in our data R individuals are most frequent, being 50%, whereas in other data they are in minority, being around 40%. Inter-and intra-group analysis revealed striking differences.
