Ancestor IJK
Descendants K(xLT), and LT
Defining mutations M9, P128, P131, P132

In molecular evolution, a haplogroup (from the Greek: ἁπλούς, haploûs, "onefold, single, simple") is a group of similar haplotypes that share a common ancestor having the same single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) mutation in all haplotypes. Haplogroup K-M9 (M9) is a Y-chromosome DNA haplogroup. This haplogroup is a descendant of Haplogroup IJK. Its major descendant haplogroup are Haplogroup LT (L298 = P326) and Haplogroup K(xLT) (M526).[2]


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).[3][4] H


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 some Jewish communities, Ethiopan Somalians, some alpine cities, some Aegean Islands and a few tribes of India


K2* 5 cases in Sumatra and 1 case in Sulawesi


X-M147. Highly rare lineage in India. 1 sample found so far.

N Found near Arctic Circle, Yakuts, Finno Ugrians (Ancient samples: Most remains from the Yangshao, Hongshan,Ancient elite Hungarians, Xiongnu and prehistoric Yakuts while the Xiajiadian mixed between O3)

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



M (M-P256*). Found in Papua New Guinea, New Britain, Polynesia , Melanesia but very rare in Australia .

S (S-P405)Found in Papua New Guinea, New Britain and across Melanesia, Australia, but rare in Polynesia (not to be confused with S-P230).

K2b1-P378 Found exclusively in the Aeta who have it at 60%.

K2b1-P336 found at 26% on the Island of Alor found also in other parts of eastern Indonesia at very low frequency



35.4 in Tuvans, 28.3% in Altaians-Kizhi, 28% of Aetas, 22.2% in Todjins, 11.8% in Kalmyks, 8.8% in Soyots, 7.6% in Khakas

10% of Timor rare in other parts of Indonesia


Q-M242 Kets , Selkups, Turkmen, Altai, Tuvans, Far East Siberia, Americas (Ancient Samples Anzick from Montana, Prehistoric Alaskan + Ancient Greenlander+Xirong, Mongolian Altai Kurgans (R1a-z93 mixed with Q1a2a1-L54) and possibly Afantova.

†R0m* sequence from Mal'ta' in Siberia 24kya y-dna sequence

R2 found in India, Sri Lanka, North Pakistan isolates

R1a found in East Europe, India, Central Asia, Altai, Scandinavia, Uighers Ancient samples include 10 out of 11 samples from Xiaohe Tomb complex, Andronovo, Pazyryk, Mongolian Altai Kurgans (R1a-z93 mixed with Q1a2a1-L54) , The Tagar Culture, Karasuk culture, Tashtyk culture, some Corded ware folk

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)

K2c-P261. Minor lineage of Bali.

K2d-P402 Minor lineage of Java
