Much of the datasheets and lists can be accessed by the HTML & PDF links or through the keys. AVOID using the browser’s back key when using the LUCID keys. Always start the key in consecutive order.  Do not go out of order bypassing features.  Some couplets my yield no selections; if so, go on to next choice.  The final selection may be two species that were too difficult to separate; if so, compare specimens and descriptions.

Everyone using or evaluating this key should return the evaluation form as soon as possible:  button Evaluation form.jpg
