Table 2 Summary of BPP species delimitation analyses of Caparinia (5 loci) and Dermatophagoides (2 loci) datasets using three sets of priors for ancestral population size (θ) and root age (τ0). Parameter estimates (means, 2.5-97.5% HPD intervals), posterior probabilities (PP) for select species delimitation models and OTUs are given

From: Cox1 barcoding versus multilocus species delimitation: validation of two mite species with contrasting effective population sizes
