The easiest way to find out is to look up each of those taxonomic ranks on Wikipedia (a good place to start) and see what it says about what makes that group different from other groups of the same rank. Then, if you find things you still don't understand about why this organism has been classified as it has, then you can come back and post about exactly where your confusion lies, i.e. what you have found out so far and what you don't understand about what you have found out.

In short, no, we will not do your homework for you. :roll:

That's not a species name.
