I believe the nomenclatorial (nomenclatural?) powers-that-be dumped
"division" (thank heavens) some time ago, admitting that, the lower you get
(phylogenetically, not morally), the less any distinction between
plant-like and animal-like organisms gets; therefore, such naming
distinctions have little logic. So it's "phylum" for all, and all for
phylum.
