I have about 600 taxon represented in a circle phylogenetic tree based on gene sequences. I am using MEGA software. It was aligned with ClustalW and I ran a NJ tree with 100 bootstrap.  I changed the view to circle format.  I had bootstrapping values ranging from 1-99.  When I select "topology only" in the menu, I find that some nodes show a bootstrapping value of 624, quite a few actually.  When I turn off topology view, all nodes have <100 value.  Could topology view be merging nodes?  I only gave it 100 bootstrap when computing the NJ tree.

Thanks in advance.
