Doug, Phil, Sasson and others who have been following this thread:

Here is some further information from Dr. Wilson in relation to the new S22 SNP, but particularly directed to an earlier post of Doug:

"F2 is taken for a SE Asian lineage in Sengupta et al 2005. DE* is the official terminology for the people we published on in Nigeria who are neither D nor E but carry YAP. IJ* should therefore be the name for anyone who is S22 only."

According to 2002 document,
if G and IJ were found to have a common mutation,
the new supergroup would be called GJ*(xH).

But already Jobling and Tyler-Smith (2003)
use this notation *without* asterisk, like R(xR1a).

The notation then would be GJ(xH).
