Do you have any idea about this?

my command:
samtools mpileup -6AB -Q 30 -uf Egrandis_162.fa 1.rmdup.bam | bcftools view -bvcg - >1_30.RawVar.bcf 2>mpileup.log&
bcftools view 1_30.RawVar.bcf | varFilter -Q 30 -d 2 - > 1_30_30.FilterVar.vcf
Start by finiding a SNP that you see in IGV, and looking at the pileup in that position, and then the sam file in that region. Do the reads have good quality scores at the locus? Is the mapping quality alright? Something that I've observed, though it might not explain all your missing SNPs, is that sometimes, the BAQ calculations will mess up real SNPs, but not indels. I've occasionally seen this with sanger verified SNPs. So try rerunning mpileup with -B, see if that makes a difference.
