Haplotype would be the better word for a list of differences. You could also
call the actual sequence data a haplotype in some contexts.

Ian Logan keeps a very close eye on GenBank.

GenBank is a very broad database (any kind of DNA from any kind of
organism), and it doesn't have summary statistics. However, suggests this query, which takes advantage of
advanced search terms for fields in the database (long URL, ends in DocSum)[Organism]+AND+gene_in_mitochondrion[PROP]+AND+14000:19000[SLEN]+NOT+pseudogene[All+Fields]&dispmax=100&doptcmdl=DocSum

It shows 7908 at the moment.
