112 dried non-pathological adult crania of known sex were studied from Maharashtra and North Karnataka cranial sutures were traced by sketch pen then transparent butter paper was fixed and suture was traced by micro tipped pen. Each suture was studied in three equal segments and classified into closely widely and straight type of sutures. Widely serrated sutures were common in male crania of coronal suture and in female crania closely and straight type of suture was common while sagital suture of male crania also had widely serrated suture but female crania of sagital suture had only closely serrated type of sutures. Lambdoid suture of male crania had widely and straight type of suture and female crania had closely serrated sutures. The angle between two halves of lambdoid was highly significant (P<0.01) in Female crania. This study will certainly help the Anatomist, Anthropologist and Medico Legal Expert because Morphometric Values of Dermal Bones are uncertain. © 2014, Indian Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology.
