Map turtles have experienced both recent and rapid di- Deirochelyinae versiﬁcation resulting in long-standing uncertainty regarding species boundaries and phylogenetic relationships Molecular clock within the genus as well as timing of their divergence. We present a phylogeny for the group that includes Multispecies coalescent geographically representative sampling for all described species and subspecies. We make use of an empirical Southeastern United States prior on rates of molecular evolution to estimate divergence times with a molecular clock under a coalescent Turtle conservation framework. Together, the phylogeny and divergence time
