  • L159.2 in U152!

    A long shot but just ordered L159.2 SNP. It has been found in a guy U152+ but is negative for everything else.
    223929 Colangelo on the U152 project.

    He shows as R1b1a2a1a1b4f but this is not an error, he is U152+!
    It is within L21, but he has this SNP too!

    As I recall, L159.2 appears in a couple of other haplogroups, as well, and that is because it is really a kind of str that serves as a sort of quasi or pseudo-SNP. Honestly, I have forgotten the details (if I ever knew them), but my impression is that L159.2 isn't something to put a lot of stock in.

    Within L21, L159.2 is below Z255, which really is a SNP. I recommend all the L159.2+ L21 guys test for Z255.

      I am not a happy chappy!

      I just checked the SNP results page and Colangelo now shows L159.2-

      I wouldn't have ordered it if he was negative to start with. I have contacted FTDNA about this!
