This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Bacteriaa"; "Bacterie"; "Bacteriota"; "Bacteriua".
Minimal standards for the description of new taxa in this group were published in 2010.Publication:

No type order designated. Tindall (2014): "No identifiable type, not currently used as a class name; as applied by Haeckel (1894) the name encompasses all prokaryotes.".Publication:

According to Rules 15, 22 and 27(3), the class Bacteria is illegitimate because it was proposed without the designation of a nomenclatural type.Publication:
