I2a2a*-M233 (old I2b1*) Z161+ found in Kurdish individual

I2a2a*-M233 (old I2b1*) is being seen as an European haplogroup, this is why I was curious about its occurrence in one Kurdish individual and wrote a post about its world wide distribution here.

Finally,  after a long search the Kurdish I2a2a*-M233 (old I2b1*) turned out to be positive for one SNP downstream of M233, he is Z161+. Newly tested SNPs are highlighted in yellow.

1x I2a2a* (old I2b1*; Z161+, L1228-, L1229-, L1230-, L1226-, L699-, L701-, L702-, L703-, L704-, M379-)(Sorani from Sulaymaniyah/Iraq)

The tree presented in the results part of the I2b1/M223 Y-CLAN STUDY shows the details/relationships of the different groups of I2a2a*. The current position of the mentioned Sorani Kurd is highlighted in bold and yellow. Z161 has two branches: L801/Z76 and L623/L147.4, highlighted in green and light blue, respectively.  L801/Z76 is divided into a three subbranches but based on 23andme data we can already exclude two of them because he is negative for Z78 ( and P95 (

Excluded branches are highlighted in dark grey (based on the SNPs tested individually by FTDNA).
Excluded branches are highlighted in light grey (based on the SNPs tested automatically by 23andme).
