I understand the difference.

I guess what I'm saying is that while I have seen dispersal from the Franco-Cantabrian region suggested for various other branches of H/HV, my understanding is that H2 has a proposed origin in Eastern Europe.

A putative Eastern European origin of H2 and an overall North/Eastern distribution of H2a2a seems to me to draw their conclusion that it came "from the Pyrenees, probably" into question.

I'd like to know what they're basing it on.

I suppose that the "possibly probably" should alert us to a potential red herring. I don't think enough ancient DNA has as yet been discovered to narrow down the Ice Age distribution. I would prefer to think in terms of a couple of refugia at least for H2.
