Identification keys are presented in two different formats: traditional dichotomous keys where a choice needs to be made at each key couplet to continue, and Lucid matrix keys where relevant states from multiple character features can be selected independently until identification is achieved. For more information concerning Lucid keys visit www.lucidcentral.org.
