"I wouldn't say the Melanesians were Negroids. I'm not sure but I think they, as well as the Aborigines of Australia, are cosnidered distinct from Negroids."

No idea either, but the term Negrito is new to me. I think Aborigines are quite distinct from Negroids and not quite related to Caucasoids either. But then, looking at the range of Caucasians......
