  1. In cases where the FAD and LAD cannot be distinguished, and multiple specimens are known, the LAD is arbitrarily placed 200 Ka after the FAD. FAD: first appearance datum; LAD: last appearance datum; * provenance uncertain. See Additional file 2: Table S2 and Additional file 3 for details and references.
