  1. Comparison of mean and range (95% posterior density distribution) of divergence time estimates for selected outgroup and Crenadactylus nodes based on Bayesian dating analyses (BEAST) of three different sets of alignment data. Age estimates are in millions of years and letters alongside major splits correspond with labels in Fig. 2A.
