  1. Values in parenthesis indicate 95% credibility intervals for Bayesian relaxed clock (BRC) and 95% highest posterior density limits for uncorrelated lognormal (UCLN) model. Complete dataset: cyt b, ATPase 8/6, and rag2 (2934 bp). Reduced dataset: excluding ATPase 8 and third codon positions of cyt b and ATPase 6 (2173 bp). Nodes refer to clades in Figure 3.
