Scientific classification
Domain: Archaea
Kingdom: not divided
Phylum: Nanoarchaeota Huber et al. 2002
Class: 'Plantea'
Order: 'Nanoarchaeales'
Family: 'Nanoarchaeaceae'

In taxonomy, the Nanoarchaeota (Greek, "dwarf or tiny ancient one") are a phylum of the Archaea.[1] This phylum currently has only one representative, Nanoarchaeum equitans.
