The Mandalorians are like the Corellians, they are basically humans but are characterized by where they come from(ex. Mandalore, Corellia)

Exactly. Mira from KoToR II was raised by Mandalorians. And She spoke Mandalorian fluently, so it is debated whether she should be considered Mandalorian.

She should not if you're talking about species. Mira was Human. So was Canderous. There's a difference between a species and a culture. The Mandalorian species was wiped out by the events of KotOR.

wikipediaMandalorians are essentially humans and are differentiated only by their beliefs and practices.

and also according to the wiki, the mandalorians were still humans during KOTOR (and technically Canderous is a mandalorian, and he looks pretty human to me) so i would have to classify Mandalorians as a race, not a species

Still don't think they ever existed as a species, since originally they came from coruscant, and not all were the same species, the original mandalore wasn't human I don't think, but still a mandolorian so you can't really have them as a species, more like a religion who believes that war is the ultimate test and show of honor. Obviously since they split from everybody else they began to differ from other humans in the way they though, becoming more extreme as there was nobody about to challenge their view so it became part of them, engrained into them if you will, rather than just a belief, into a structure much like a race, but they were still almost all human not a seperate species.

(From what I know anyway.)

Enjoy an increased knowledge of the Mandalorian history. You could tall the Taung the Mandalorian species, but since they already have a name it's far more likely that to be a "Mandalorian" was more of a lifestyle, a culture, as I mentioned before. Nothing "species" about it, really.

Precisely. The Mandalorians are a culture, NOT a species. A real world example of this are Christians, Jews, Muslims or Americans, Brits, Aussies - All the same species but different cultures.

Arguably at one time they may have been considered a species in the Star Wars Universe, but not for many millenia.

Yes, and I am positive the majority, if not all people who named Mandalorians were referring to the Neo-Crusaders.
