I presume that you already have downloaded the article by Reidla,
Kisivild et al "The Origin and Diffusion of Haplogroup X"


There are some very good phylogenetic diagrams of Haplogorup X, and its
sub groups X1 and X2 which includes the X2 subclades X2a, b, c, d, e and
f. A mutation 195 and a transition at 1799 is specific for all the X2
sequences including the NA Haplogroup X2a reported in the article. There
is a nice table of all the polymorphisms in HVR1 and HVR2 found in
samples including those in the literature which were used in the study.
The 195 is a mutation which I don't see in your participant.
