|Possible place of origin||Eurasia|
|Descendants||Q-L330, Q-M3, Q-Z780|
Q-L54 has descendants across Western and Central Europe, the North and East of Asia, and the Americas. It includes two of the major pre-Columbian paternal lineages in the Americas: Q-M3 and Q-Z780. Its descendant lines also include the Central Asian Q-L330 lineage. The boy Anzick-1, who lived 12,600 years ago and was found in the state of Montana, has a Y-chromosome that refers to haplogroup Q-L54*(xM3).
Q-L54 is currently defined by the L54 SNP alone.
