An addendum.

If the Kern County boas, samples #30-32, are small morph boas, then most likely #26 is an intergrade. mtDNA is inherted matrilineally. The situation would most closely resemble our President Elect Barrack Obama. Mr. Obama inherited his mtDNA from his mother, so if we look at his mtDNA haplotype alone, he would be considered a European. However, his phenotype is a mix of European and African because his father is Kenyan. His Y chromosome, because it is inherited entirely from his father, would be similar to other Kenyan males, with no trace of a European ancestry.
