Is Pontid considered in the East Med grouping, or are they separate? And if so what is the difference?

Pontid is different, the peak of pontid features is near the black sea, while the east med peak of features is in greece and western shores of anatolia.

Pontid is nordo-med and shares similarities with atlantids (nordo-med).. probably it is due to ancient common origins, celts are thought to arrive from near the black sea, in today southern ukraine, like pontids

I don't think this is the best place to discuss about this.
