Is there a published estimate of how long (in millions of years) since C.
elegans shared a common ancestor with one of the Tylenchid nematodes (e.g.,
or in fact specifically,  Heterodera glycines)? If not, is anyone able to
provide a guess that you would be willing to have stand as a pers. comm. in
an article I am writing for J. Nematol.?
