The dated phylogeny of the genus Pelophylax with the intraspecific structure of studied species. Numbers between clades show the estimated time of the divergence (Mya; blue bars indicates 95% highest posterior densities of the estimated node ages). The duration of the Messinian Salinity Crisis (MSC) is highlighted in yellow. The outgroup taxa (P. nigromaculatus and Rana graeca) are not shown. Photos of water frogs represent detected lineages (photographs by Daniel Jablonski).
