*our posterior for the basal split of rodent Plasmodium (node a) differs slightly from our priors. This is because we set up calibrations on the root height of the linked mitochondrial gene tree, rather than on the root height of the species tree (i.e. including all loci).

The combined 95% HPD for the Pacheco2011 calibrations represent our best divergence time estimates. Nodes are labeled as in Figure  1. Values in brackets represent 95% HPD.
