"The conception of the Mediterranean race was originally developed by Giuseppe Sergi. Sergi claimed that that Mediterraneans were a "brunet race which has appeared in Europe.. Giuseppe Sergi's book The Mediterranean Race, argued that the Mediterranean race had in fact originated in Africa, probably in the Sahara region, and that it also included a number of dark-skinned peoples from the African continent (North Africa and the Horn of Africa), such as Ethiopians and Somalis."

Sergi claimed that that Mediterraneans were a "brunet race which has appeared in Europe ... derived neither from the black nor white peoples, but constitut[ing] an autonomous stock in the human family".:24–27 Sergi claimed that the light-skinned Nordic race descended from the Mediterranean race.:24–27 Such claims of the Nordic type descending from Mediterranean type were later supported by prominent anthropologists such as Carleton S. Coon in his work The races of Europe (1939) who subscribed to depigmentation theory that claimed that Nordic race's light-coloured skin was the result of depigmentation from their ancestors of the Mediterranean race.

The Xanthocroic race were the "fair whites" of north and Central Europe. According to Huxley,
On the south and west this type comes into contact and mixes with the "Melanochroi," or "dark whites"..."
