Currently if a higher taxon is monophyletic, we don't present a variable helpful UI. See:

We now have (for each synth version) a file like:

Which provides among (other things) the MRCA for all of the tips that descend from a non-monophyletic taxon.

We need to:

  1. design some simple API that takes an OTT ID are returns that MRCA, or an error to indicate that the OTT ID does not correspond to a "broken" taxon.
  2. implement that somewhere. Presumably it just reads that JSON file and looks for the ottID in the non_monophyletic_taxa object.
  3. implement some method to tell that web service when there is a new version of synth (and hence a new file to read).
  4. implement the UI side that calls this service whenever the request to tm-lite for the higher level taxon fails.
