Lemma 68.13.8. A reduced, locally Noetherian singleton algebraic space $Z$ is regular.

**Proof.**
Let $Z$ be a reduced, locally Noetherian singleton algebraic space over a scheme $S$. Let $W \to Z$ be a surjective étale morphism where $W$ is a scheme. Let $k$ be a field and let $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(k) \to Z$ be surjective, flat, and locally of finite presentation (see Lemma 68.13.3). The scheme $T = W \times _ Z \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(k)$ is étale over $k$ in particular regular, see Remark 68.4.1. Since $T \to W$ is locally of finite presentation, flat, and surjective it follows that $W$ is regular, see Descent, Lemma 35.19.2. By definition this means that $Z$ is regular.
