Martijn, a comb is a pattern, a vestige is not a pattern. Look up the word vestige, it means the remnants of something coming or going. Something appearing incomplete. Here this formation has the appearance of forming into or out of a comb or a loop, but of course is not.

I think you have a misunderstanding of a vestige as you keep referring to it as a pattern.

PS. I should add here that I can not support Patti's definition of a vestige: "My understanding of a vestige is that it is the smallest remnant of a pattern", because the size is actually completely irrelevant in a vestige. The essence of a vestige is the presence of a ridge-field that has a different direction compared to all surrounding ridge fields (see the earlier definition that I quoted from Cummins & Midlo, 1943).

I wasn't exactly referring to size when I said smallest. I was referring to the faintest resemblance to a pattern. A remnant, a vestige.

Hi Patti

Thanks for clarifying the confusion, but what do you mean by "I think it would be considered a vestige bordering on a comb.", but does vestige imply something in palmistry, but it appears there is some kind of shape added to like a pattern when you have a look.

How to go about in such cases.

"Vestiges can appear anywhere we typically can find a pattern, e.g. the volar pads " also why did you mention looks towards triradius "My understanding of a vestige is that it is the smallest remnant of a pattern. Here there appears to be a shape that is not quite a comb, not quite a loop, with not quite a second triradii."

Then how to about.

"Vestiges are conspicuous local disarrangements of ridges, not conforming to the definition of a true pattern but suggesting an approach toward the construction of a pattern." Cummins & Midlo "Finger Prints Palms & Soles"


Patti, page 103 in Cummins & Midlo says:

"Ordinarily a vestige is merely a local disarrangement of ridges which converge abruptly or a system of straight and parallel ridges which differ in direction from those surrounding the vestige area."

In Anand's example there is no real 'local disarrangement', nor is there 'a system of straight and parallel ridges which differ in direction'; therefore I had to conclude that there is no pattern. Because basically all ridge-groups outside the normal triradius are running parallel to each other (with only a small diverging/converging angle).

This is correct, there is no pattern. A vestige is not a pattern, it just somewhat resembles one.

Hi Patti,

Thank you for your attempt to acknowledge that my observation that there is no pattern is correct... but I actually described that there is also no vestige, because the presence of a vestige would indicate the represent the presence of a pattern - however the vestige itself is not recognized as a 'true pattern'.

By the way, on page 105 in Cummins & Midlo we can read that for the palm the whorl (W), loop (L), vestige (V), and open field (O) are considered as the basic elements to describe a full palm.
The whorl and loop represent a 'true pattern', but only the 'open field' is represents the missing of a 'true pattern'.
And thus the 'vestige' does represent the presence of a pattern... but it is should only not described as a 'true pattern'!

So I think you misunderstood the essential requirement in order to talk about a vestige: the aspect of the presence of a ridge field that has a different direction than the surrounding ridge fields; see the example on p.105.


Sorry, I have not much to proceed, because so far you only shared some associations without explaining what you have actually observed regarding the ridge details in Anand's example.

Patti, what exactly made you think that Anand's example has a 'vestige'?

(I am asking because to me it appears that so far you had associated the vestige with any type of vague pattern that could induce association with a loop; but that is not what Cummins & Midlo's definition of the vestige sugggests.... and I am sure that the definitions shared by other authorities do not vary much from what Cummins & Midlo described)

Anand... very nice to see that you now finally yourself have started wondering + sharing questions about how to understand Patti's words.

(And I hope that Patti will now soon start sharing what exactly in your example made her think about a vestige)


Thumbs up!

The picture below presents a typical example of a 'vestige' (which is here positioned BETWEEN a proximal loop on the lower thenar and a radial loop on the upper thenar); but I should add here that sometimes a vestige can also become manifest without the presence of any loop or whorl in the surrounding ridge fields... but even then the direction of the surrounding ridge fields are quired to show a different direction, because that is the essential characteristic of a 'vestige' ridge field!

Hi Martijn

You have mentioned no pattern because it is not vestige, but iam saying there is an shape which is what vestige indicative of. My doubt is on the tririadis aspect, which is where iam confused in the way patti has mentioned.

I don't understand why you have to mention this statement
"Anand... very nice to see that you now finally yourself have started wondering + sharing questions about how to understand Patti's words"

I think this statement is unnecessary and is not going to fetch anythingh from my point of view

Anand, again, I wondered about what exactly do you have in mind with a 'comb'?
And I am also wondering how to understand your use of the words 'vestige' and 'shape'?

Please be aware, despite that I described why I think there is no 'pattern'... I also described by detailed that I do observe some ending- and/or fusing ridges; but those are not sufficient to speak of a 'pattern' (nor a 'true pattern', nor a 'shape', nor a 'vestige', nor a 'comb') nor any other dermatoglyphic pattern at all.

Because those details represent the so-called minitiae or individual 'ridge characteristics' of the dermatoglyphics; but those minor details do not make a dermatoglyphic pattern or shape!


PS. I wrote what I wrote because you responded to Patti:

"... but what do you mean by "I think it would be considered a vestige bordering on a comb.""

To me your question to Patti indicates that despite that you initially liked Patti's answer, it now actually makes you wonder about what Patti's words really implicate.

Patti, this is not how a 'vestige' is defined in the field of dermatoglyphics; because the presence of a ridge field that is directed differently compared to the surrounding ridge fields is essential.

PS.To me it appears that you are completely ignored Cummins & Mildo's definition of a vestige (which I have already quoted in one of my earlier posts), see:

I think you have a misunderstanding of a vestige as you keep referring to it as a pattern.

Patti, beyond my word choice, formally one can describe a 'vestige' as a (quoted from Cummins & Midlo, page 105): "localized disarrangement of ridge course".

That is why I described that 'vestiges' are no 'true patterns'... but informally speaking one can recognize it as an incomplete 'pattern' anyway, and thus I described it as a 'pattern' (just like an ARCH fingerprint can be described as a 'pattern', but formally arches do not belong to the 'true patterns' either!!!)... but only in the perspective that loops and whorls represent the 'true patterns'.

Does this make sense?

This implicates that a certain variation in ridge field course/direction is essential before one can speak of a 'vestige'... but I think it is obvious that such a characteristic is actually completely missing in Anand's example.


And thus I recognize how your suggestion (about that you perceive that I misunderstood things) is likely the result of your inability to read the context of how I described the 'vestige' as a pattern.

I have described via the vestige-definition shared by Cummins & Midlo why Anand's example can not be described as a vestige; but meanwhile you haven't shared any observation nor a definition that supports your assumption regarding the 'vestige' in regard to Anand's example.

(I consider your reference to the out-of-context meaning of the word 'vestige' appears quite irrelevant here... because meanwhile you appear to be ignoring Cummins & Midlo's definition - again, see the materials in their work that I already mentioned earlier in this discussion on page 103 & 105)


PS. The so-called 'music bee' can be recognized as the popularized variant of a 'vestige'.

"Vestiges are conspicuous local disarrangements of ridges, not conforming to the definition of a true pattern but suggesting an approach toward the construction of a pattern. A vestige may be a group of sharply converging ridges, ellipsoidal in shape if convergences occur in both extremities, or a group of straight parallel ridges forming a distinctive field within a zone of ridges of different course." Cummins & Midlo page 106

The reason I would call it a vestige is illustrated above. It does not conform to a loop or a comb pattern, however, it is not simply an Open Field and the remnants of patterns can be determined easily.

Patti, first of all: thank you for your efforts to explain the basis of your earlier shared perceptions.

Unfortunately, I can hardly confirm any of your observations. Because, if we take a closer look at the essence of a 'vestige' we see is that it represents "a local disarrangement in the parallel course of the ridges" (quoted from Loesch in 'Quantative Dermatoglyphics', 1983) - which is a similar definition to the description presented by Cummins & Midlo.

But this implicates that one can only speak of a 'vestige' when the ridge fields at all sides outside the "local disarrangement" have a different than the area concerned; the example below shows that the vestige area has a different direction than seen in all 4 surrounding ridge fields.

Is this a comb pattern or no pattern in mercury mount  - Page 2 Vestig10

But Anand's example does not have such a phenomenon at all, because all ridge fields basically follow the same direction (see my picture below which is featured with the similar ridges in both of Anand's pictures)... and thus I can only conclude that it can not be vestige.

Is this a comb pattern or no pattern in mercury mount  - Page 2 Anand-12

And regarding Anand's 'comb'-idea:

Loesch defined the 'comb' as: "Comb - a formation in which three or more parallel ridges join another ridge almost at right angles to their direction."

And thus I can only conclude that Anand's example does not display any characteristic that can be associated with a 'comb', because his example basically only includes parallel ridges (plus some terminating + forking ridges): see my illustration below, where I have marked the visible ridges in BOTH of Anand's pictures.


PS. Patti, your third picture indicates that you have completely misunderstood the essence of a 'vestige', because your picture suggests that the 4 green lines represent a 'vestige'... but those 4 ridges represent nothing more than a perfectly normal directed 'ridge field' that actually sort of has the same direction as all surrounding ridge fields (excluding the effects on the ridge direction due to the location of the pinky triradius of course).

PPS. Patti, after our earlier discussions... it is very hard for me to see you drawing in the lower section of your second picture the light blue dot plus the light blue ridge part (which both together suggest that they make together a ridge that crosses a continued ridge line - which is basically not possible).

Your 2nd illustration for Anand's second picture:
Is this a comb pattern or no pattern in mercury mount  - Page 2 Pictur15


Because if we take a closer look at the other picture presented by Anand (the one that you did not use in your illustrations... even though I could argue that this other picture is of a better quality), then we can see that your blue 'dot' + the blue 'ridge part' are not present in the other picture!

It's quite frustrating to see you making this beginner-like type of mistake... because it appears to me that you didn't even check out whether your light blue 'dot' + 'ridge part' are also present in the other picture (which is unfortunately not the case at all... and thus there is no basis to put any value on those details in the picture that you used).

Though when I take a look at the definitions for a 'vestige' and a 'comb' as presented by Cummins & Midlo and by Loesch... I recognize that such minutiue details are actually even quite irrelevant regarding the question whether Anand's example is a 'vestige' or an 'open field' (I observe that both pictures indicate that it is just an 'open field' between the triradii below the pinky and the ring finger).


NOTICE: Only the triradius below the pinky is visible in Anand's first picture.

I think the appearance of a vestige is even more visible in this image.

One shouldn't make a "mountain out of a molehill" and the vestige is just a molehill. There are no hard core rules as it can even be something that has the appearance of a pattern, but isn't. Cummins & Midlo list several possibilites, these qualities are not expected to be found in all vestiges. It doesn't have to conform to rules at all - that's the whole point, it looks like a pattern but doesn't fit the rules for the pattern.

What Anand calls a "shape" is what Cummins and Midlo call a "conspicuous local disarrangement of ridges". It's obvious that there is a convergence of ridges in a small area. This is what Loesch refers to as a "cusp" ("Quantitative Dermatoglyphics" Loesch) a fanning of ridges that has a relationship to both the triradius and loop formations. That alone can make it a vestige according to Cummins & Midlo.

I'm sticking with my first response. It looks like a vestige leaning towards a comb.

I see where Loesch describes the 'cusp' but nothing about a vestige. Can you quote from your source?

From Penrose "An area without a loop or triradius is known as an arch on the finger tip or an arc on the palm or sole. Such a region may carry markings that are not regarded as true patterns, such as fan or ladder formations, and these are sometimes separately recorded in descriptions, especially on the area at the base of the thumb." ("Dermatoglyphics and Medicine" Lionel S. Penrose)

The 'bee' is more common on the upper thenar mount, but this sort of configuration we are looking at here, and the comb, are more commonly found in the interdigital area between the ring and little fingers.

Beginner's mistakes? Laughing Seems you were the one who was unfamiliar with the vestige (beyond the 'musical bee') as you seem to be aware of them from reading text rather than practical experience.

Thanks for the defintion and input, so it looks there was some kind of approach towards a pattern formation during the devlopement of ridges then suddenly it stopped which implies that some indication of pattern was forming and stopped defintely a tendency towards a pattern formation is there. So under palmistry what kind of meanign should be given for such kind of occurences in mercury mount, like you cannot say totoally it is pattern nor can we say complete formation of triradius.

Also i will post few more pattern which i have doubts about classification.

Here's a letter to a medical publication's editor suggesting a change in the choice of word for vestige to "anteform".

http://europepmc.org/articles/PMC1685262/pdf/ajhg00206-0088.pdf

"TERMINOLOGY IN DERMATOGLYPHICS
To the Editor: In dermatoglyphics, it has been customary to use the term vestige to
refer to a developing and frequently discernible preconfiguration on the palm and the
sole. Cummins and Midlo [1] described these dermatoglyphic phenomena as "conspicuous local disarrangements of ridges, not conforming to the definition of a true
pattern but suggesting an approach toward the construction of a pattern." The word
vestige, however, connotes a remaining trace of something not developing but
deteriorating. In the light of this, we submit that vestige is a misnomer and that a more
accurate term be substituted for it. We suggest the word anteform to denominate this
transient configuration.

"Dermatoglyphics in Primates" Cummins & Midlo:

V, Vestige a local disturbance of ridge direction,
such as a local rectilinear system having a direction
different from the region which it adjoins, an abrupt
convergence of ridges, etc. A vestige, as here formu-
lated, has no definable relation to a particular type
of true pattern (L, W or S, see below). The term
vestige is not intended to imply an actual evolutionary
status

I think the appearance of a vestige is even more visible in this image.

Nonsense, because Cummins & Midlo describe on page 103 that a vestige can manifest in two types of manifestation: 1) "a local disarrangement of ridges which converge abruptly", or 2) "a system of straight and parallel ridges which differ in direction from those surrounding the vestige area".

In Anand's example there is no ridge system which "converge abruptly" and there is also no evidence of a ridge system that shows a change of direction compared to the surrounding ridge systems. And thus there is no vestige.


Patti wrote:One shouldn't make a "mountain out of a molehill" and the vestige is just a molehill. There are no hard core rules as it can even be something that has the appearance of a pattern, but isn't. Cummins & Midlo list several possibilites, these qualities are not expected to be found in all vestiges. It doesn't have to conform to rules at all - that's the whole point, it looks like a pattern but doesn't fit the rules for the pattern.

Nonsense, you are misleadingly suggesting here that 'vestiges' have no clearly identifiable characteristics; but that is not true at all. The definitions shared by Cummins & Midlo and Loesch present the evidence that 'vestiges' do require to have certain characteristics (and 'cushioning' or a 'cusp' is not enough to call it a vestige because those phenomena are not even mentioned in the definitions).

So you completely misunderstood the vocabulary used by Cummins & Midlo; because on page 100 we can actually read that the 'vestige' does have a unique status as one of the 'primary configuration type' (the fact that a vestige is not recognized as a 'true pattern' is only a matter of definition).



Patti wrote:What Anand calls a "shape" is what Cummins and Midlo call a "conspicuous local disarrangement of ridges". It's obvious that there is a convergence of ridges in a small area. This is what Loesch refers to as a "cusp" ("Quantitative Dermatoglyphics" Loesch) a fanning of ridges that has a relationship to both the triradius and loop formations. That alone can make it a vestige according to Cummins & Midlo.

Anand's example does show 'cushioning' ridges; and this phenomena predisposes against the development of loops and whorls. But 'cushioning' should not be recognized as a primary type of configuration itself, because it is known as fenomena related to the level of the so-called minutiae. On page 13 in the work of Loesch figure 2.6c shows explicitely why 'cushioning' is not recognized as a primary type of configuration due to NO "rotation" and thus no "singularity" inside the ridge system.

But contrarty to a 'cusp' (which basically has a lack of "rotation"), the change of ridge direction required for a 'vestige' does represent an explicit example of "rotation" inside the ridge system.

And this explains why Loesch describes on page 8:

"It must be emphasized, however, that a cusp is not a singularity or a discontinuity."

Which rethorically sort of proofs that a 'vestige' should not be confused with a 'cusp' or 'cushioning'!



Patti wrote:I'm sticking with my first response. It looks like a vestige leaning towards a comb.

I see where Loesch describes the 'cusp' but nothing about a vestige. Can you quote from your source?

I have already shared a quote from Loesch (page 141) who described the 'vestige' as a 'ladder' in terms of: "a local disarrangement in the parallel course of the ridges", see:
http://www.modernhandreadingforum.com/t2557p15-is-this-a-comb-pattern-or-no-pattern-in-mercury-mount#27693

On page 36 Loesch more explicitely describes a 'vestige' as a "local disarrangement in the parallel-ridge system". But in the same sentence she also discriminates the 'vestige' type of local disarrangement from the "discontinuities in the system of parallel ridges"... which can be understood to relate directly to the phenomenon of 'cushoning'.

This shows how you made a fundamental mistake by mixing up a 'cush' with a 'vestige'; because the first is a matter of the minutiae, while the second is a matter of primary pattern configuration.



Patti wrote:From Penrose "An area without a loop or triradius is known as an arch on the finger tip or an arc on the palm or sole.

("Dermatoglyphics and Medicine" Lionel S. Penrose)

Your reference to this quote indicates that you got somehow caught up inside the vocabulary without understanding things properly. Because just like an arch represent a different pattern type from the loop and the whorl... a 'vestige' has completely different characteristics than an 'open field'; however, both the 'vestige' and the 'open field' may show ridges that show 'cushoning'.

Because an 'open field' only indicates the missing of 'pattern' (such as loop or whorl); however, the presence of a 'vestige' also implicates that there is no 'open field'.

If you take a look at figure 3.11 on page 41 in the work of Schaumann & Alter you will see confirmed that a 'vestige' always requires the presence of "an area of abruptly disarranged ridges which are oriented at an angle to the general direction of other ridges in the area" (quoted from page 39).

So a 'vestige' ALWAYS requires the presence of a ridge system that has clearly discernable other direction that ALL surrounding ridge systems... just like I have pointed out in my earlier picture:

Patti wrote:

Your statement about the 'bee' and the thenar is true. But in all 'vestige' examples shared by Schaumann & Alter we find a 'bee'-like pattern... so the 'vestige', the 'ladder' (= a long vestige), and the 'bee' (= a wide vestige) can sort of actually be recognized to represent synonyms.

But you are talking like as if a 'bee' is different from the 'vestige', but it is not really different at all.


Patti wrote:Beginner's mistakes? Laughing Seems you were the one who was unfamiliar with the vestige (beyond the 'musical bee') as you seem to be aware of them from reading text rather than practical experience.

I was actually talking there about your picture where you are basically suggesting that ridges can cross each other at right angles; that is what I call a 'beginners mistake'.

Your response indicates that you are trying to reverse my point.. but meanwhile you never even made an attempt to present a clear definition of a 'vestige' (or a 'comb'), while it is obvious for me that you are not working with any clear definition at all - and thus I am not surprized to see that you hold on to your subjective interpretations.

And thus I am probably waisting my time, because to me it appears that you are willing to describe any type of 'cushing' in an open field as a 'vestige' (which is illustrative for how you mix things up).

In my view the essence is that vestiges are extremely rare in the palmar zone below the fingers, and they are also quite rare on the hypothenar. But that is basically due to the fundamental issue that a 'vestige' typically becomes manifest between two loops with the closes ends face to each other (or alternatively a 'comb' may be involved as a substitute for one loop or both loops). And this also explains why in the literature the 'vestige' is nearly always discussed by detail in the perspective of the thenar zone only (though I should add here that it is also not rare on the hypothenar, because that region of the hand also relatively often tends to show combi-patterns).

And due to the fact that such a combination-constellation hardly ever becomes manifest under the fingers (which is most likely to occur when an ulnar loop + a distal loop is found on the palmar zone below the little finger)... this explains why the literature does not appear to present any examples of vestiges in the zone below the fingers.


Which kind of indicates itself that it is actually a huge fundamental mistake to classify Anand's example as a 'vestige', while there is only evidence of some 'cushing'... again, Loesch's guideline on page 8 proofs that you made a fundamental mistake to perceive any type of 'cusp' as a 'vestige' (because only a 'vestige' shows the characteristic of an abrupt ridge field discontinuation/disarrangement... which the 'cusp' only shows the phenomenon of 'cushioning').

You start right off with a mistake that takes you quickly to making a mountain out of the molehill. Cummins & Midlo do not limit a vestige to 2 types. No one limits them to two types (except maybe you). Laughing

p.s.:
The second most common location for a vestige is between the ring and little fingers.

p.p.s:
Cummins & Midlo say that they 'may' be found in the two ways you have described, and those are the more obvious, but is certainly not limited to those to examples. They start out their description with the fact that a vestige only looks like a pattern. In other words, it only needs to have features that appear like a pattern. The fact that they don't fit a particular set of rules is what makes them a vestige. Anand's sample obviously has converging ridges in a small space, another of the possibilites mentioned by Cummins & Midlo. Penrose, as quoted above, states they may or may not need to be even noted and that the thenar configuration is the more likely to be made note of.

From your response, I think that you have only observed the thenar vestige in practice.

Patti, your response is rather suggestive - please substantiate what you have in mind regarding the work of Cummens & Midlo.

I have refered to the section in the work of Cummins & Midlo (and Loesch) where the 'vestige' has been basically been defined in terms of the two types of guidelines in order to define the 'vestige' - but this all relates to just one type of a vestige (there are no real subtypes at all).

I am quite sure that there is no ground for your claims regarding the 'vestige' at all, because your words clearly indicate that you perceived a 'cusp' for a 'vestige'. If you continue putting my input aside with your rather diffuse unsubstantiated claims regarding the definition of a 'vestige'... then it appears to me that you are falsely suggesting that your claims are backed by the scientific works while this is not the case at all. Because so far you have not substantiated your personal definition of a 'vestige':


PS. Cummins & Midlo's description on page 106 only includes two likewise guidelines regarding how a 'vestige' can be recognized:

"A vestige may be (1) a group of sharply converging ridges, ellipsoidal in shape if convergences occur in both extremities, or (2) a group of straight parallel ridges forming a distinctive field within a zone of ridges of different course."

(Again, Anand's example does not include any group of 'sharply converging ridges', nor does it include a group of 'parallel ridges forming a distinctive field'; while in my 'vestige example we can actually see BOTH characteristics - see below)


Is this a comb pattern or no pattern in mercury mount  - Page 2 Vestig10


Anand's example only shows 'cushioning' ridges (which can only be associated with a 'cusp'... but not a 'vestige'):

"Trends in Dermatoglyphic Research" confirms the lack of guidelines and definitive rules for a vestige in the description that their determination is "subjective".

Patti, your reference to your Penrose quote is pure fantasy... because in that quote Penrose does not refer to the 'vestige' at all.

And please substantiate why you think that Cummins & Midlo have presented a "list" of possibilities... because I have now described with 2 quotes that they have described only two possibilities.


PS. By the way, the statistics shared by Cummins & Midlo on page 116 tot 118 suggest that incomplete loops (for example where a triradius is missing) have probably been counted as a vestiges in their statistics.

Is this a comb pattern or no pattern in mercury mount  - Page 2 Schaum10

From "Dermatoglyphics in Medical Disorders"

Notice the references at the bottom (page 42) for 'vestige with a tendency toward a loop'. A loop is made up of recurving ridges. The only ridges that do not flow in the general direction of surrounding ridges are the recurves. So, for a vestige to have a tendency toward a loop it may be missing the recurves - which could result in many rods coming to a dead end (typically a comb). If the rods are met by an irregular angle of ridges but not separated or closed off by them, we have the sample that Anand has offered. A vestige with a tendency toward a loop may also have the appearance of recurves but on closer examination they are not really clearly defined. Again, as mentioned above, the description for a vestige is wide ranging and subjective or vague as it's not a true pattern and doesn't conform to true pattern rules.
