turtles.ep.nex. Nexus data file containing the event paired matrix for all observed species (open i.e. with PAUP* or Mesquite software). Based on the rank table (Table S4), the event pairs were generated with eventpairsim.pl (see Table S5): The timing of two events (ranks) is compared among each other, generating an event pair: When event A occurs before B the event pair is coded as state "0". When event A and event B occur at the same time the event pair is coded as state "1" (simultaneity). When event A occurs after event B the event pair is coded as state "2".
