Taxonomic remark Excludes Archaebacteria, now in separate kingdom Archaea; includes Cyanobacteria (Cyanophyta, included in the algae in older treatments) although the latter are still treated under the botanical nomenclatural Code (ICNafp). Treated as a kingdom following Ruggiero et al., 2015 although LPSN treats as a domain, with no kingdom level entry. Cavalier-Smith (1983, 1988, 1992) uses Bacteria as a kingdom level name, although his concept includes Archaea (as Archaebacteria) as an infrakingdom (later phylum) within Bacteria, refer Cavalier-Smith, 1998. Thus use of the authorships "Cohn 1870 stat. nov. Cavalier-Smith 1983" (as used in Cavalier-Smith, 1998, where a a formal description was upplied) or simply "Cavalier-Smith, 2002" (where the name at kingdom rank was validated under the Bacteriological Code by designating Enterobacteriales as the type order) are not presently used in IRMNG because this taxon is used in those publications in a different sense to that of Woese. [details]
