Values in brackets are the 95% HPD. TMRCA were estimated using an uncorrelated lognormal molecular clock model, coalescent prior with constant population size and a mean rate of evolution for the four-fold degenerated sites of 0.073 s/s/myr (95% CI: 0.025-0.123 s/s/myr); 192 sites were included in the analyses.
