The graph would gain in clarity and informative value if only the R1b1b2(xR1b1b2a1) branch (the Turkish-dominated one) would be marked at distinct. Because the star-like expansion does not belong, obviously, to the R1b1b2 nor R1b1b2a stages but only to the R1b1b2a1 and R1b1b2a1a stages, already in Western Europe.

No competing interests declared.
