Dear Greg,

Thank you for letting us now, we will change it to avoid this problem in 
the future.

That link on the website is pointing to the old filename that was 
changed once we started to work with other divisions (plants, etc.). It 
was renamed to /species_tree.vertebrates.branch_len.nw/ and the previous 
file left as a symlink for backward compatibility. You can find the 
species tree here: 

Kind regards,
