Types of Archaea

Crenarchaeota​
Crenarchaeota​

The Crenarchaeota (Greek for "spring old quality" as specimens were originally isolated from geothermally heated sulfuric springs in Italy) (also known as Crenarchaea or eocytes) are archaea that have been classified as a phylum of the Archaea domain.

Euryarchaeota​
Euryarchaeota​

Other articles where Euryarchaeota is discussed: archaea: …subdivisions, the Crenarchaeota and the Euryarchaeota, and one minor ancient lineage, the Korarchaeota. Other subdivisions have been proposed, including Nanoarchaeota and Thaumarchaeota.

Lokiarchaeota​
Lokiarchaeota​

Lokiarchaeota is a proposed phylum of the Archaea. The phylum includes all members of the group previously named Deep Sea Archaeal Group (DSAG), also known as Marine Benthic Group B (MBG-B). A phylogenetic analysis disclosed a monophyletic grouping of the Lokiarchaeota with the eukaryotes.

Nanoarchaeum ​Equitans​
Nanoarchaeum ​Equitans​

Nanoarchaeum equitans is a species of marine Archaea that was discovered in 2002 in a hydrothermal vent off the coast of Iceland on the Kolbeinsey Ridge by Karl Stetter. It has been proposed as the first species in a new phylum.

Thaumarchaeota​
Thaumarchaeota​

The Thaumarchaeota or Thaumarchaea (from the Ancient Greek: θαῦμα, translit. thaûma, lit. 'miracle') are a phylum of the Archaea proposed in 2008 after the genome of Cenarchaeum symbiosum was sequenced and found to differ significantly from other members of the hyperthermophilic phylum Crenarchaeota.
