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. ScottR.
