  1. HV* harbors the entire HV lineage, excluding the H haplogroup. To avoid small sample size, haplogroups were either grouped on the basis of phylogeny (ie, N1 and I, W and X) or added to ‘others’ (haplogroups M and Pre-HV). Different letters in the unplanned test column indicate significant contribution of a specific haplogroup to the overall heterogeneity.
  2. RU, Russia and the Ukraine.
