That figure is not a phylogenetic tree. It seems to me a Sankey or arc diagram assembled in a circular way (

If you have a phylogenetic tree you can use iTOL where you can color each genera affiliated with a particular phylum in a different color, like this example - they colored by domain, but it works in the same way to phylum.

I hope this helps,

Thank you very much for your reply. Needs more work on arc diagram.
