We consider the process of random transpositions of n particles on a circle, where transpositions only occur if the spacing is at most some number L = L(n). We look in particular at the evolution of parsimony distance used by biologists in the context of studying mutations in chromosomal structure. The proof relies on a comparison with a suitable spatial random graph and we discuss the importance of the appearance of its giant component.
