The designation Sub-Nordic, or more precisely Subnordique, was used by Montandon to designate a central European Nordid altered by Alpinid admixture. The name has also been applied to an eastern European blended type (Deniker).
The type is variable, and less stabilized than adjacent blends, e.g. Nordid. Consequently, the Sub-Nordid type or gradient occupies various intermediate anthropometric and morphological positions between Nordid and Alpinid.
Examples from The Races of Europe (Carleton S. Coon 1939):

Sub-Nordid types are found in great concentrations in Austria, Switzerland, France and adjacent territories - essentially anywhere whereNordid and Alpinid elements are both salient in the population.
