Three calibration points were chosen to put a temporal scale on the phylogenetic hypothesis. The minimum age of the Greater Antillean cichlids was placed at 5 million years (node B, Fig. 1), because Nandopsis woodringi is an extinct member of the Greater Antillean endemic genus species, described from Las Cohobas, Haiti (Cockerell, ), is Late Miocene in age (– Cited by: GREATER ANTILLEAN HYLID FROGS 43 The remaining five species of Greater Antillean hylids seem to be allied closely with the mainland Hyla.

This suggests that either these frogs are more recent derivatives of mainland ancestors, or that in isolation, evolutionary change has had less dramatic effects on these phylogenetic lines than on Osteopilus.
