N.L. neut. n. Sifarchaeum, Candidatus generic name; -ia, ending to designate a class; N.L. neut. pl. n. Sifarchaeia, the Sifarchaeum class


Sun, et al (2021): The class is circumscribed based on concatenated protein phylogeny and rank normalisation approach as per Parks et al. Type order is Candidatus Sifarchaeales. The description is the same as for Candidatus Sifarchaeales ord. nov.

Note: "Candidatus Borrarchaeia" Liu et al (2021) [published April 28] should be considered a late heterotypic synonym of "Candidatus Sifarchaeaia" Sun et al (2021) [published June 28], which in turn uses the priority principle to form the order name "Candidatus Sifarchaeales" Sun et al (2021) on the basis of "Candidatus Sifarchaeum" corrig. Farag et al (2021) [published April 13].
