Effects of differential extinction rates remain being an issue in biogeographic and evolutionary studies. Here, I use empirical examples and simulated datasets to asses how the specification of different extinction rates influences ancestral range estimation in historical biogeography. The results showed that variations in scale and asymmetry of extinction rates may have notorious effects in the accuracy of biogeographic inferences, specially when the rates of extinction are high.
