aThe posterior distributions of these parameters were estimated on a logarithmic scale. The reported posterior characteristics were then transformed onto the natural scale.

b Whereas the prior of the divergence time TDIV is expressed in generations, its posterior is expressed here in years for convenience, assuming 2.5 generations per year [26,28]

c The Highest Posterior Density Interval HPDI is chosen as the continuous interval of parameter values with highest posterior density.
