Y-DNA haplogroup K-M9 is an old lineage established approximately 40,000-50,000 years ago whose origins were probably in Southwestern Asia, South Eastern Asia, or South Asia. At present this group contains two distinct classes of subgroups: 1. Haplogroup LT 2. Haplogroup K(xLT. Today haplogroup K-M9 is only in four states M9, P128, P131, P132. The others are descending mutations are ancestral to the descendant haplogroups (L,M,NO,P,S,T) within haplogroup K-(LT)in addition to that there are also the mutations that define the descendant haplogroups in paragroup K (K1-K4). For more information see the table above for mutations and descendants and see the diagram below for info on descendant haplogroup clads in K-(LT).
Haplogroup L and T (K2). Spotty with L being found at its highest frequency in Baloch of Afghanistan and western cost of India and Pakistan , while T is most common among: Fulani (Sahelian African), Ethiopans, Somaliland, Djibouti, some alpine cities in Europe, some of the Aegean Islands and a few tribes of India
O Sino-Tibetans + modern Longshan and Daxi and Xiajiadian which was divided between N and O3 (Xiajiadian was mixed others were pure) (O3), Austronesians, Polynesians, Melanesians, Malaygasy and in modern Liangzhu to a very low extent (O1), and Austro-Asiatics (O2) dominant east Asian line (O) note O1 and O2 form a clade against O3 called O1'2
R1b West Europe, Chadic Langauges, Armenian Highlands (Found in several Bell Beakers from Germany and in late antique Basques of whom it is still common in as well as 13.3% (4):one P probably R1b2-v88: of Guanches from the Canary Islands, (reports of King Tut by iGENEA belonging to R1b have not been verified)
