Y-chromosomes which are positive to the M479 SNP and negative to the M124, P249, P267, L266, PAGES00004, and L381 SNPs, are categorized as belonging to Paragroup R-M479*. It should be noted that exclusive studies have not been done to determine frequency or presence of R-M479* and figures below are not indicative of R-M479* frequency, especially within South Asia since Pakistan is the only South Asian country included within the referenced study.
