They apparently are very recent, say, 300-500 years back. Otherwise the 37-marker haplotypes, let alone 67-marker ones, would have time to mutate in several different individuals.
In this case my assumption that these subclades do not matter for common ancestors who lived many hundreds and thousands years BP, is justified.

the M227 subclade is not reliably distinguishable even at 67 markers.
