Question: How do I plot the posterior probability distribution of a particular node from a stochastic character map?

to create stochastic character maps of a discrete character from a set of 1000 phylogenetic trees. The function `describe.simmap`

summarizes the results of these stochastic maps. This function yields as output the posterior probabilities of each node being in each state. What I want is not the posterior probability, but the probability distribution for a particular node in a particular state. Does `phytools`

provide that? If not, how do I plot the posterior distribution for the probability of a particular state at a particular node from the character map data itself?
