FTDNA quit using asterisks on mtDNA subclades a few months ago, in K at
least. The theory seems to be that there can be sublcades added later, so
they can't say that you have been tested for all lower subclades. But they
didn't go back and take away asterisks from customers with them. So now I
have some with K1a and K1a* and K2a and K2a*.
