  1. The mean, 95% credibility intervals (95% HDP) and node supports (Prob) are given for the analyses of the cytochrome B and the species tree estimation from multiple loci. Missing values (-) are due to taxa that were not included in the species tree estimation, low support or discordance among the gene tree of the cytochrome B and nodes estimated from the combined analysis of multiple loci. MRCA = Most Recent Common Ancestor, * = time calibrated nodes from Table 6.
