  1. Table summarizing median crown group ages (in Ma, rounded to the first decimal) for selected formicine clades as estimated by BEAST analyses of different data sets. Bracketed numbers represent 95 % HPD (highest posterior density) intervals for selected nodes, rounded to the nearest integer. PP = posterior probability as estimated from the UCE-100best data set; a indicates this genus is not recovered as monophyletic in the particular analysis. Crown group ancestral ranges are further shown as estimated with the DEC and S-DEC models implemented in RASP for selected clades, bolded for probabilities > 75. Node numbers correspond to Fig. 3; only ranges with highest probability are shown. T = Neotropical, N = Neartic, P = Palearctic, E = Afrotropical, O = South-East Asian, A = Australian
