Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay, well then I can only provide some baggrund information and then lets hope we find something that look like an answer... the word eubacteria is the old word for our everyday word bacteria. The problem was back in time that every procaryote organism was called a bacteria and there exsist another lifeform / domain that was diffrenent from the eubacteria  the archaebacteria

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The usage of prefix "eu" in words like eubacteria and eukaryotes caused as "true" confusion. When it comes to eukaryotes, it refers to cell's nucleus while in eubacteria, it refers to prokaryotic organisms which do not belonged to archaebacteria or much prefer as your typical, normal bacteria that encountered in everyday life.
