Dear microbiologist:

I have a question.  What is the correct singular form of Archaea? The 
form "Archaeum" was appeared in some papaers and the form "Archaeon" was
in another paper.  Which was correct? Or, both form were correct?  This
may be simply linguistic problem .
If you have some information, please let me known.
Thank you in advance.
