Craniometric Landmark

Feature found consistently on skulls that is used as a reference point for measurements of the skull. Craniometric landmarks were developed for use on modern human skulls, but many can be applied to fossil species and other primates; however, not all of the landmarks developed for modern humans are present on earlier hominid species. Sometimes referred to as anthropometric landmark.
