[phylocom-user] Problem Generating Family level phylogeny

Hi Ana,

There’s an inconvient ‘bug’ in the online version of phylomatic which I
haven’t had time to fix - it doesn’t like it when a terminal taxon in your
list is an internal name in the megatree (there’s a note about this on
the interface page). The solution is to make a dummy terminal in the
input list:


then make the tree and use an editor to strip out `_dummy`.
