This calibration point was then employed to estimate times of divergence for various nodes of interest--but with some degree of caution because, strictly speaking, the two subfamilies (sensu OSF2) proved not to be monophyletic, as will be demonstrated below.
This subfamily is considered to be a monophyletic group distinguished by the presence of a row of anterodorsal spines on the fore tibia and a double node in the ovipositor apex (Hanson and Gauld, 2006).
