This module returns true or false for the tree. The easiest place to see this is to go to the List of Trees window and under Column select Boolean For Tree and then the one you want. Does this do what you need?

This module does not handle backbone constraints; all trees must have the same taxa present. For backbone constraint trees, where the constraint tree need not contain all taxa, use the 'Tree Congruent with Backbone Constraint Tree Topology' module."

How can I get it and where does it hide? It is exactly what I need to do my analyses.
