For those without comedic tastes, the so-called experts at Wikipedia have an article about Template:Taxobox colour.

Some potentially helpful information:

  • Animalia: Animals. Duh.
  • Archaeplastida: Land plants, green algae, red algae and glaucophytes (another kind of algae).
  • Fungi: Funguses, obviously. Rather closely related to animals.
  • Chromalveolata: Golden algae, brown algae, yellow-green algae, water molds and a whole bunch of other (predominantly unicellular) organisms (as you might've guessed, related to plants).
  • Rhizaria: Amoeba-like organisms related to plants.
  • Excavata: A bunch of unicellular organisms related to plants. Named after a couple of its species' primary occupation of "excavating" the intestines of insects.
  • Amoebozoa: Amoebas and slime molds, mostly. Related to animals and fungi.
  • Bacteria and Archaea: Single-celled organisms that lack a cell nucleus. The two groups mostly differ in their metabolic pathways and cell membranes.
  • Viruses: Those small thingies that need host cells to replicate.
  • incertae sedis: A term used when scientists don't have a fucking clue how to classify the organism in question.

Also, when copying stuff from Wikipedia's documentation page for the taxobox template, I found out that scientists have invented a new kind of taxon for footprints as well as for eggs: ichnotaxa and ootaxa respectively.
