They are a ancient people that lived across all the Arabia, before the extension of modern mesopotamians into Arabia that pushed them further south, now in very south of the pennsylvania. They are said to be an Australoid ppl and in their phenotype they are mostly Veddoid with some being refined and others less so. The refined Veddoids often exhabit Cauccasian- like features (it can also be due to admix).
Some of them are also even Negritoes.

Photos of them seem to be very rare an those here is the only ones I have yet founded on them

Mahars are often mentioned as the lost Arabs, apparently because they are supposed to be the original Arabs that inhabited Arabia before the expansion of modern mesopotamians in the south of Western Asia (Arabia).

Very little is known of prehistoric times in the barren deserts of Arabia. The rock drawings in the desert suggest that the prehistoric people of the second millennium were not the Arabs from the north . In the past the descendants of the Mahra tribe inhabited these regions. They were an Australoid by genes and lived in Yemen and the Shahra of southwestern Oman, on the Dhofar highlands. They are now known as the 'lost Arabs' ( al-'Arab al-ba'ida ), and are now the tribes of 'Ad, Tamud and Gurhum. The Shahra tribe are probably descendants of the People of 'Ad. The population is now in small numbers . Their native language is very different from Arabic, something older and called the "language of the birds."

the People in the first two pictures look very veddoid indeed.
Also they look like typical people in the island Ceylon (sri Lanka)
