Not in phylolm, because it’s faster to avoid manipulating this large matrix, if possible (and it is indeed possible for many purposes). If you can rephrase your calculations to use branching times (distance from a node to its descendant tips) or using the nodes’ distance to the root, then you could use functions like pruningwise.branching.times and pruningwise.distFromRoot in phylolm. Other folks could chime in, for tools in other packages. Cécile

However, the function doesn't seem to return a covariance matrix. Is there a way to get the cophenetic matrix with the out put of this function? Otherwise I'm stuck using cophenetic again...

It has an option model=“EB” for early burst.
