Table 2 Divergence times in million years (Ma) for Callithrix species and select nodes (MRCA = Most recent common ancestor; values in brackets = 95% highest posterior density). Node names follow major node destinations shown in Fig. 2 in capital letters

From: Mitogenomic phylogeny of Callithrix with special focus on human transferred taxa

Node Taxa Diverging at Node Age (Ma)
A C. jacchus - C. penicillata (Caatinga clade) 0.51 [0.35–0.69]
B C. kuhlii - (C. jacchus + C. penicillata (Caatinga clade)) 0.82 [0.59–1.09]
C C. geoffroyi - (C. kuhlii + (C. jacchus + C. penicillata)) 1.18 [0.87–1.58]
D C. aurita - (C. geoffroyi + (C. kuhlii + (C. jacchus + C. penicillata))) 3.54 [2.37–4.88]
E Callithrix - Cebuella/Mico 6.83 [4.86–9.39]
