Taxonomic remark On its discovery, this group was initially treated as a sub-group of Bacteria and named Archaebacteria; as subcellular differences were quantified it was renamed Archaea and given its own "domain" by Woese et al., 1990. Fossil occurrence is inferred as this is believed to be an ancient group although cannot be distinguished in the fossil record on purely morphological evidence. Treated as a kingdom following Ruggiero et al., 2015 although LPSN treats as a domain, with no kingdom level entry. [details]
