Although I agree with most of what you've written here, I think
you are excluding a lot of UFO occupant reports which describe
beings as blobs, bug-eyed monsters, robots (perhaps rightly
excluding creatures with tentacles), etc.  The majority of
reports describe small, large skulled creatures, but there are
also a wide variety of other beings in the annuls of UFO history.
I'm not really disputing anything you have written here, but I
just thought I'd point this out.  If you want some particular
examples, I can list them in another message.
