TABLE 1. Fossil calibration prior bounds and MCMCTREE Bayesian inference posterior mean age estimates (Ma) and 95% highest posterior densities for the four suggested calibration crown groups (in bold) and selected neighbouring divergences. Among the 16 additional calibrations, four large-bodied clade calibrations are excluded in (A) and included in (B).
