ABSTRACT:Background – Establishing a person’s identity is very important process in civil and criminal cases. According to literature, very few studies have been conducted in the identification of various race groups by lip print recognition. Aim – To determine the predominant lip pattern and to compare amongst Kodavas, Keralites, & Tibetans race groups. To evaluate the variation in lip patterns in males and females of each race group. Method – Lip prints of 600 individuals (each groupcomprised of 200 each) recorded. Analyzed using Adobe Photoshop software C5 & classified according to Tsuchihashi classification. Data were analyzed statistically by chi-square test and z test for proportions. Results – Type I patterns were predominant in Kodavas, males showed Type IV and females Type I. Type II patterns predominantly seen in Keralans, Type IV in males and Type II in females. Type III patterns predominantly seen in Tibetans, Type V in males and Type III in females.
