Thanks, Mickey. At first I thought this was no use because it would
only give me apomorphies for the first of my many MPTs; but then I
realised I could save and re-load the majority-rule tree instead:
contree all/outroot=paraphyl strict=no semistrict=no majrule=yes
adams=no treefile=majrule.tre replace=yes;
describetrees 1/apolist = yes
Which gives me exactly what I want.
