Fine Dissection of Human Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroup HV Lineages Reveals Paleolithic Signatures from European Glacial Refugia (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0144391)

I'll read this paper later. These papers are what is needed to find the origins of mtDNA haplogroups. We need mitogenomes. However with 316 HV*(xH, V) mitgenomes you can't determine the origins of HV*(xH, V). I don't why papers on modern mtDNA always go for the oldest possible origins. It gets annoying.

Their theory is possible, that's all I can say. 316 mitogenomes isn't enough to be conclusive. There's a mtDNA result from Mesolithic Sicily that is probably HV1.
