Unlike many bacteria, which undergo undergo fancy morphological development (spores, hyphae, prosthecae, etc.), archaea do not. Why do you suppose this is?

Related to Mark O. Martin's comment, the majority of the most well studied Archaea are thermophiles and a relative lack (if there is such a thing) of fancy morphology might be conducive to survival in these conditions. The first of the non-extremophilic Archaea have been isolated and it'll be interesting to see the morphological diversity amongst them.
