Types of Archaebacteria

Crenarchaeota​
Crenarchaeota​

In archaea: Habitats of the archaea Uncultivated organisms in the subdivision Crenarchaeota are postulated to be the most abundant ammonia-oxidizing organisms in soils and to account for a large proportion (roughly 20 percent) of the microorganisms present in the picoplankton in the world’s oceans.

Euryarchaeota​
Euryarchaeota​

In archaea: Habitats of the archaea In the subdivision Euryarchaeota, uncultivated organisms in deep-sea marine sediments are responsible for the removal of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, via anaerobic oxidation of methane stored in these sediments.

Lokiarchaeota​
Lokiarchaeota​

Dr Guy, Dr Ettema and their colleagues from the University of Bergen, the University of Vienna, and Uppsala University, have described a new group of Archaea, named Lokiarchaeota, and identified it as a missing link in the origin of 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.
