Ian is correct that you are in the H5 subclade. However, you may really be
H5a or H5a1. To determine if you are not simply H5 but H5a or H5a1 one
needs to know the status of nucleotides 4336 and 15833. Unfortunately, 4336
and 15833 are not in HVR1 or HVR2 so to determine the status of 4336 and
15833 you will need a sub-clade test.

This list has been behaving rather erratically recently, so you may get lots
of responses, or perhaps only this one.
'H5' IS THE HAPLOGROUP for your results as 456T and 16304C separate H5 from
H4, H6, etc.
And, '485T' is a nice mutation to have because it is rather distinctive.
I have had a quick look at some databases but I cannot find anyone's results
with 456T & 485C occurring together. So consider yourself rather special
(for the present).
But H5 is quite a large group, and to make any conclusions, apart from
saying it is a typical European result would be guessing.
I have put 600+ complete mtDNA sequences on my site, and Achilli's sequences
13, 14 & 15 all have 456T.
But I think my site is perhaps a bit daunting to a new member
- unless that is you have the patience to follow through things.
I shall be happy to carry on this discussion, off-list, if you wish.
