μL = mutation rate per base pair per generation for each locus L.

θsp = combined parameter 4 NeμCo of species 'sp', or their ancestor 'A', relative to the mitochondrial mutation rate μCo

Ne represents the effective population size.

t = time of divergence in years.

mL = locus-specific migration rates per generation for each locus L.

* = unreliable estimate or limit due to flat or incomplete posterior probability distribution sampled.

~0 = effectively zero, although the lowest 'bin' does not actually include zero.
