Re: MRCAs of all stripes
I think part of the problem is how people use the term MRCA. Depending on the definition (type of MRCA), it can also be used interchangeably with Last Common Ancestor. I am not sure I like the term myself, as it confuses people who mistake one usage for another and people confuse it with: "the time when a species appears."
