Figure S1. List of studied specimens.
Figure S2. Optimization of the ancestral cranial sequence of Placentalia for obtained by squared change analysis using parsimony by considering the Atlantogenata hypothesis and including the results obtained for the ancestral nodes of the four major clades of placental mammals, that is Afrotheria, Xenarthra, Laurasiatheria, and Euarchontoglires. Bars correspond to 95% confidence intervals. The width of the confidence interval is directly proportional to evolutionary rates and inversely proportional to the amount of available character data.
Figure S3. Optimization of the ancestral postcranial sequence of Placentalia obtained by squared change analysis using parsimony by considering the Atlantogenata hypothesis and including the results obtained for the ancestral nodes of the four major clades of placental mammals, as described in the caption to Fig. 5.
