Ok, thanks. Unless there's some spill-over into the Scandanavian groups in the future, I think I can reasonably conclude I'm L258- then.
If I'm understanding the way this works, then L258+ is either going to be synonymous with I1-Bothnian or be some subset of it, but so far looks like a synonym.
Assuming I'm correct on this, and one of the clades identified within I1d actually has been confirmed by SNP, perhaps the other clades will be generally accepted and included on the ISOGG and FTDNA trees.
